Bio:
Brian Ostafin (Psychology, BSS, RUG). Dr. Ostafin’s research investigates mechanisms through which mindfulness interventions may help to alleviate psychopathology (with a focus on addiction, anxiety, and depression), including: i) automatic cognitive and affective processes, assessed with reaction time tasks, and ii) fear of uncertainty, assessed with self-report and threat conditioning tasks.
