Abstract

Investigations on emotional words demonstrated that processing emotional information in child patients with anxietydisorders diagnosed for anxiety (generalized anxiety disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder) or depression isbiased towards pathology-related stimuli. Also, neuroimaging studies showed a failure of prefrontal areas in inhibitingthe emotional reaction in children with bipolar disorder. Finally, despite several studies investigated memory and attentionusing emotional words, little is known about the development of emotional lexicon in both healthy and psychopathologicalchildren.
