Matt Kimble Earns NIH AREA Award

Matt Kimble (Psychology)  has been awarded a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health through NIH’s R15 AREA program. The grant provides three years of funding to support a project titled ERP and Eye Tracking Studies of Expectancy Bias in Trauma Survivors, which will engage six students over the life of the grant in research with people who have a history of trauma. The researchers will use electroencephalography, eye-tracking equipment, and subjects’ self-reported symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder to explore the nature and extent of subjects’ expectancy biases, a poorly understood area of PTSD research.
