Neurobehavioral Affective Control Training (N-ACT)

During the duration of Summer 2023, I will continue my work in the CALM Lab with the Attention, Impulsivity, Memory (AIM) study as well as the Neurobehavioral Affective Control Training (N-ACT) trials. The main objectives of the AIM research are to understand how stress impacts attention and memory in real-world decision-making and the relationship between emotional and non-emotional cognitive processes. N-ACT is a cognitive training program that utilizes computer-based tasks to practice various mental techniques related to emotional processing and control. The main objective is to determine if the N-ACT program leads to differences in the way people feel, think, and act–especially those who suffer from various psychopathologies.
