What do ‘compulsivity peaks’?

Compulsory peaks in fear, anxiety, stress and impulsivity characterized by reduced or sustained levels of sustained attention, are fundamental components of the brain processing of threat, hence the Greek word for ‘alertness’.
Consistent with previous studies, the participants were required to make discrimination calls.
Neurotypical activity was recorded using EEGs, while the alertness and arousal state (brain activity for a few seconds before the phone call was made) and behavioral measures like eye gaze monitoring and finger scanning were assessed.
In both tests, other standard tests were repeated after control of physiological arousal (fear, anxiety or neurotic arousal) to find out which brain areas had activated more reactively.
