Longitudinal and multimodal investigations of the modulation of fear- and anxiety-related processes by life adversity-predictive and buffering factor


Project B07 aims to identify the mechanisms through which adversity promotes both the development and relapse of anxious symptoms though experimental studies.

Thereby, we consider brain structure and function, (epi-) genetics as well as hormonal, behavioral and psychophysiological read-outs in multimodal investigations employing a longitudial design.
