  Changing Fear  
(VTC)

Elizabeth Phelps, PhD
Silver Professor of Psychology and Neural Science
Laboratory Director, Department of Psychology
New York University, New York, New York

A seminar in the Research Institute Seminar Series

Animal models of fear learning provide a basis for understanding human fears. In her lecture, Dr. Phelps will explore how the neural mechanisms identified in animal models are consistent with human brain function, and she will extend that research to the complex learning situations more typical of human experience.

Dr. Phelps will also describe how fear - once acquired - can be diminished. She will explore the neural mechanisms underlying a range of techniques that can be used to diminish fear in humans, how they are affected by stress, and how fear might be more persistently inhibited by targeting memory reconsolidation.

A public reception will precede this event in the VTC CAfe at 5 p.m.
