I am studying the psychological processes that contribute to the dysregulation of behavior, emotion, and cognition. Most of this research has focused on syndromes of disinhibition such as psychopathy (antisocial personality disorder), conduct disorder, aggression, and impulsivity. However, our group is also interested in understanding how emotionality short-circuits cognitive processing and engenders dysregulation in people with high anxiety.
