EEG markers in early life could help predict and diagnose anxiety
EEG signatures for anxiety?
- Analyze EEG patterns associated with different subtypes of anxiety, such as social anxiety, generalized anxiety, phobias, and separation anxiety. These may have distinct signatures.
- Look at EEG readings taken while showing children an anxiety-provoking stimulus (this study only analyzed resting EEGs).
- Determine how to combine EEG findings with measures like behavioral data, maternal anxiety/depression, and environmental stressors to reliably predict child psychopathology risk as early in development as possible.
