Examining Transdiagnostic Effects of Extremes in Approach Motivation and Cognitive Control
Much attention has been focused on dysfunction associated with high or low approach motivation, or with deficits in effortful control. Recent evidence suggests, however, that it is important to consider these two dimensions jointly. This project examines the transdiagnostic effects of extremes in approach motivation and cognitive control across self-report, behavioral, and fMRI measurements. This summer, I will continue to assist my mentor in behavioral data collection, recruitment, participant management, and assisting with fMRI data collection.
