Vasey, Michael W.; And Others
Child Development, v67 n3 p1173-85 Jun 1996
Tested for bias toward shifting attention toward threatening stimuli among high-anxious children and away from such stimuli among low-anxious children, ages 11-14. Results supported the predicted attentional bias toward threat cues among high-test-anxious children. Unexpectedly, the predicted attentional bias away from threat cues among low-anxious children was found only for boys. (HTH)
