Attachment theory is concerned with the basic level of social connection associated with approach and withdrawal mechanisms. Consistent patterns of attachment may be divided into two major categories: secure and insecure. As secure and insecure attachment style individuals vary in terms of their responses to affective stimuli and negatively valanced cues, the goal of this study was to examine whether there are differences in Beta power activation between secure and insecure individuals to feedback given while performing the arrow flanker task. An interaction emerged between Attachment style (secure or insecure) and Feedback type (success or failure) has shown differences in Beta power as a function of both independent factors. These results corroborate previous findings indicating that secure and insecure individuals differently process affective stimuli.
