Dolcos Lab wins research grant from the University Hospital Foundation (UHF)

The project proposed by Dr. Florin Dolcos and Dr. Nicholas Coupland was successful in the 2007 UHF Medical Research competition. It will use brain imaging tools to investigate the neural mechanisms underlying the negative affective bias in clinical and non-clinical anxiety.
