DeMond M. Grant, Ph.D.

Anxiety; EEG/ERPs; peripheral psychophysiology

Degree: Ph.D.
Broad Expertise/Interests: How anxiety affects information processing; attention; working memory; comorbidity between anxiety and depression
Equipment/Techniques: EEG/ERP; peripheral psychophysiology (ECG; SCL; EMG-startle)
Seeking Collaborators with Skill Sets: Immunology; fMRI
Neuroscience Research Interests: My research evaluates how anxiety affects information processing. In particular, I study how anxiety, with a focus on social anxiety and GAD, affects what we pay attention to. I also am interested in moderators of these affects, with an emphasis on attentional control/CE. I use ERPs and information processing tasks to study this.
