Around one in ten people are affected by social anxiety disorder during their lifetime.
Anxiety in social situations is not a rare problem: Around one in ten people are affected by social anxiety disorder during their lifetime. Social anxiety disorder is diagnosed if fears and anxiety in social situations significantly impair everyday life and cause intense suffering.

A study now reveals that the successful treatment of an anxiety disorder alters key brain structures that are involved in processing and regulating emotions.
