Abstract

A considerable literature exists which demonstrates that threatening information has the capacity to seize attention, and these effects have been shown to be accentuated in individuals who are highly anxious. Few studies, however, have considered the role of other
variables on attentional bias. The present study examined the contribution of anxiety and emotional perception (EP) to attentional focusing on threat.
