They recruited 16 people with GAD and 17 psychologically healthy volunteers and scanned their brains using functional magnetic resonance imaging, the blood flow fluctuations caused by changes in activity in various regions of the brain measures. Each person spent eight minutes in the fMRI scanner, let her thoughts wander.
