# s-psych: if | when 'sixth sense' triggers anxiety

<<  the apparent 'sixth sense' we have for danger in social situations, with the direction of a person's gaze being a crucial cue. People with non-clinical anxiety are particularly well poised for action >>

<< Anxious people process threats using regions of the brain responsible for action. Meanwhile, 'low anxious' people process them in sensory circuits, responsible for face recognition >>

<< The human brain is able to detect social threats in these regions in a fast, automatic fashion, within just 200 milliseconds >>
