Caroline M. Cozza

Research Summary:
I am primarily interested in mindfulness-based treatments for psychopathology including Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).

Current inquiries include:
1. What are the primary mechanisms of change that underscore the success of these treatments; specifically, do mindfulness-based interventions affect dorsal and ventral subsystems of attention?
2. Do exerienced mindfulness meditation practitioners make fewer perceptual errors associated with inattentional blindness compared to meditation naive individuals?
3. Does meditation experience predict performance on tasks measuring alerting, orienting, and conflict monitoring?

In addition to this work, I enjoy teaching yoga at Blue Point Yoga and practicing meditation.
