Anxiety

Our studies on anxiety are currently based in Costa Rica, where we are in the process of screening 5000 high school students ages 12-18 with measures of anxiety, depression, and resilience. All students will provide a saliva sample for genetic studies aimed at identifying the genetic basis of anxiety, and fifteen percent of these students will receive comprehensive neuropsychiatric interviews to examine the relationship between the results of the anxiety screen and the presence of anxiety disorders, depression, and other psychiatric problems.  Ultimately, we hope to identify factors that predict both susceptibility to depression and anxiety, as well as factors that are related to protection from depression and anxiety (i.e., resilience).
