Arash Javanbakht, M.D., explores the science of fright for Knowledge on Tap

What’s the difference between those who enjoy horror movies, haunted houses or roller coasters and those who don’t?
What is fear, why do we experience it and are we any different from other animals in experiencing fear and learning from it?
Pull up a chair, grab a beverage of choice and join Wayne State University for its first virtual Knowledge on Tap.
During this virtual event, Dr. Arash Javanbakht — assistant professor and director of the Stress, Trauma and Anxiety Research Clinic in the department of psychiatry and behavioral neurosciences at Wayne State’s School of Medicine — and Dr. Linda Saab — assistant professor of psychiatry — will answer the above questions and more during “The Science of Fright — Why We Love to Be Scared.” The duo will also discuss what fears are normal and whether fear and anxiety can be fixed.
