Requirement for BDNF in the Reconsolidation of Fear Extinction
Therapies based on the impairment of reconsolidation or the enhancement of extinction offer the possibility of decreasing the persistent recollection of distressing memories. However, the direct interplay between reconsolidation ...
Extinction memory in the crab Chasmagnathus: recovery protocols and effects of multi-trial extinction training
A decline in the frequency or intensity of a conditioned behavior following the withdrawal of the reinforcement is called experimental extinction. However, the experimental manipulation necessary to trigger memory ...
Spontaneous recovery from extinction in the infant rat
(Elsevier Science, 2014-11)
Within the Pavlovian conditioning framework, extinction is a procedure in which, after conditioning, the conditioned stimulus (CS) is repeatedly presented without the unconditioned stimulus (US). During this procedure the ...
Open field exposure facilitates consummatory extinction
(Lippincott Williams, 2016-12)
During extinction the organism learns that a conditioned stimulus or a conditioned response is no longer associated with an unconditioned stimulus, and as a consequence a decrement in the response is presented. The exposure ...
Post-learning sleep transiently boosts context specific operant extinction memory
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2017)
Operant extinction is learning to supress a previously rewarded behavior. It is known to be strongly associated with the specific context in which it was acquired, which limits the therapeutic use of operant extinction ...
On the roles of hunting and habitat size on the extinction of megafauna
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2017-02)
We study a mechanistic mathematical model of extinction and coexistence in a generic hunter-prey ecosystem. The model represents typical scenarios of human invasion and environmental change, characteristic of the late ...
Stimulus specificity in the acquisition and extinction of conditioned taste aversion
