Samantha Linton

I am a final year PhD student interested in understanding adolescent brain development and its links with anxiety and risk-taking behaviours.

I am really interested in the use of electroencephalography (EEG) and psychophysiology (skin conductance and heart rate measures) to study how adolescents process threats in their environment.
