Gewhni Park, Ph.D., is interested in the relationship between heart rate variability (HRV) and cognition-emotion interaction at various stages of information processing, including perception, attention, and decision making. Low HRV individuals may exhibit maladaptive cognitive and emotional functions that lead them to be more prone to emotional problems. Another line of her research involves attentional biases exhibited by individuals with high anxiety. Individuals with high anxiety are characterized with attentional biases favoring threat-relevant stimuli. She utilizes different attentional tasks to investigate the nature of anxiety-related attentional biases. She is also interested in the influence of social learning on selective attention and decision making.
