Using the Neuroscience of Fear Extinction for Anxiety Reduction (UNFEAR) Study

Do you get anxious in social situations?

You're not alone. Social anxiety disorder affects as many as 12% of Americans, and can result in significant distress and disability. Cognitive behavior therapy is one of the best treatments available, but as many as 25% of patients do not fully respond and we do not know why.

This study aims to improve cognitive behavior therapy response for patients with social anxiety disorder by seeing whether brain activity during emotional learning tasks can help us understand who will do best with this kind of therapy and why.
