Catecholamines and Social Phobia

Started June 28, 2021

Abstract or project description

Teen anxiety and depression continues to rise despite more emphasis on mental health awareness than ever. One of the issues that is prevalent for psychology is the variability between individual response on traditional mental illness tests. Having a quantitative test will provide an additional data point to help better reduce variability in qualitative response and ensure that teens who need assistance will get assistance. This project is designed to see if there are data trends that indicate an association between catecholamine levels and social phobia scores.
