Psychobiological Mechanisms of Fear Extinction
Alicia E. Meuret, Ph.D. is the Director of the Anxiety and Depression Research Center (ARC) and an Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology at Southern Methodist University.

She completed postdoctoral fellowships at the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at Boston University and the Affective Neuroscience Laboratory in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University.
Her research program focuses on novel treatment approaches for anxiety and mood disorders, biomarkers in anxiety disorders and chronic disease (asthma), fear extinction mechanisms of exposure therapy, and mediators and moderators in individuals with affective dysregulations, including non-suicidal self-injury. Dr. Meuret is the founder of the Capnometry-Assisted Respiratory Training (CART), a biobehavioral treatment for normalizing hypocapnia.
