Simons uses psychophysiological methods to study human emotion and cognition.
His current studies utilize event-related brain potentials (ERP) to study cognitive characteristics of
patients with anxiety disorders such as OCD and GAD. His laboratory is currently investigating inhibitory control in neglected children and children with repetitive
behavior disorders. His current work
is done in collaboration with Marty Franklin and John Herrington (Penn) and
Mary Dozier (UD). Dr. Simons is also active in the clinical-science movement and is very
involved in the PCSAS accreditation of clinical-science graduate training
