Extinction circuits for fear and addiction overlap in prefrontal cortex

Learning & Memory

Apr 22, 2009

Jamie PetersGregory J Quirk

Abstract

Extinction is a form of inhibitory learning that suppresses a previously conditioned response. Both fear and drug seeking are conditioned responses that can lead to maladaptive behavior when expressed inappropriately, manifesting as anxiety disorders and addiction, respectively.

Limbic System

The limbic system is comprised of several different parts of the brain involved in emotion, motivation, learning, and memory. Discover the latest research on the limbic system here.

Fear Conditioning

Fear Conditoning is often used in rodents to study emotional learning. Subjects express defensive responses to a neutral conditioned stimulus paired with an aversive unconditioned stimulus. Discover the latest research on Fear Conditioning here.

Cognitive Flexibility and Anxiety

Anxiety and stress can impact cognitive flexibility of an individual, involving prefrontal cortex. Here is the latest research.

Basal Ganglia

Basal Ganglia are a group of subcortical nuclei in the brain associated with control of voluntary motor movements, procedural and habit learning, emotion, and cognition. Here is the latest research.

Amygdala and Midbrain Dopamine

The midbrain dopamine system is widely studied for its involvement in emotional and motivational behavior. Some of these neurons receive information from the amygdala and project throughout the cortex. When the circuit and transmission of dopamine is disrupted symptoms may present. Here is the latest research on the amygdala and midbrain dopamine.

Amygdala: Sensory Processes

Amygdalae, nuclei clusters located in the temporal lobe of the brain, play a role in memory, emotional responses, and decision-making. Here is the latest research on sensory processes in the amygdala.
