Dr Alexander Taylor

Dr Alexander Taylor CO2 study

The project investigated the relationship between anxiety and changes in balance.

Volunteers completed a breathing condition with or without extra CO2 for a period of 20 minutes, inducing temporary anxiety symptoms.

Balance control was measured during these breathing conditions. Results showed that anxiety directly impacted balance control in healthy younger adults.
