Podcast: Forgetting Fear with Daniela Schiller
by AMNH on
Fear can take many forms, from minor phobias to life-altering conditions such as PTSD. Now, new research is shedding light on how these so-called fear memories could be changed. In this podcast, neuroscientist Daniela Schiller discusses the neural mechanisms of emotional control and potential ways to modify or “erase” fear memories.
Dr. Schiller’s talk was recorded at the Museum on June 6, 2012.
