About Peter J Lang

Dr. Peter J. Lang is Graduate Research Professor and Director of the Center for the Study of Emotion and Attention. The Center’s research core is a basic emotion science program, studying cognition & attention in affect processing, that is the foundation for translational studies of patients with anxiety and mood disorders. Current projects–following the NIMH RDoC initiative–aim to define biomarkers that could better distinguish among internalizing disorders, determining their physiological diathesis, and potentially defining more precise targets for treatment. Methods include assessment of cortical circuits (fMRI, EEG), stress hormones, genes, and autonomic & somatic reflexes.
