Targeting memory reconsolidation to prevent the return of fear in patients with fear of flying.

Summary of "Targeting memory reconsolidation to prevent the return of fear in patients with fear of flying."

When a memory is recalled, it may again exist in a labile state and stored information becomes amenable to change, a psychobiological process known as reconsolidation. Exposure therapy for anxiety disorders involves accessing a fear memory and modifying it with less fearful information. A preclinical study reported that providing a reminder of a fear memory 10 min prior to extinction training in humans decreased fear up to 1 year later (Schiller et al., 2010).
