    Hooria's Current CBT and MBSR Research at Stanford

    Hooria is currently involved in research at Stanford University examining how different therapies and genetic and environmental factors influence the way people process and regulate emotional information and how this relates to the likelihood of future clinical disorders. Specifically using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), Hooria is conducting research on the effects of different therapies (specifically Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)) on adults with social anxiety disorder / social phobia. All studies are funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Research Project Grant Program (R01). Please see the following links for more information:
