Summary: Findings are presented from a large RDoC study-sample of patients afflicted with anxiety/mood disorders, assessing differences among principal DSM diagnoses, co-morbidity patterns, clinicians ratings, and questionnaire measures of negative affect and life dysfunction–as these patient data relate to a novel, potential brain-marker of pathology: The event-related potential (ERP) elicited by a startle-evoking stimulus.
