I am interested in perceptual biases in recognition and detection of threatening information in the environment. When, and under what conditions do we perceive an ambiguous object as a threat? Are phobic individuals more likely to recognise ambiguous objects as the object of their fears? I am using psychophysics, electroencephalography, pupillometry to address these questions.
