While there is considerable variance in estimates of the prevalence of anxiety disorders, there is clear consensus that these disorders are the most common mental health problems in the western world. Anxiety and related disorders are especially common on college campuses, including ours at UC San Diego. We created Calm Down as an EEG based neurofeedback game that can help uses to engage brain states associated with calm. The project is currently unfunded and in pilot testing led by UCSD medical student Chika Matsumoto, who won a competitive summer fellowship to work with us on developing and testing this intervention.
