Peter Lang

Dr. Lang directs the UF Center for the Study of Emotion and Attention, undertaking a broad range of experiments, studying brain (using EEG, fMRI) and bodily reactions (autonomic and somatic reflexes) in emotion as they are modulated in attention, perception, and memory imagery. Translational research is dedicated to adapting promising new knowledge to advance diagnosis and treatment of anxiety spectrum and mood disorders. Post Traumatic Stress disorder (PTSD), a major public health concern and a significant rehabilitation problem for returning veterans, is the focus of a current project.
