Generalized anxiety disorder is associated with overgeneralization of classically conditioned fear.

Shmuel Lissek, Antonia N Kaczkurkin, Stephanie Rabin, Marilla Geraci, Daniel S Pine, Christian Grillon,

<h4>Background</h4>Meta-analytic results of fear-conditioning studies in the anxiety disorders implicate generalization of conditioned fear to stimuli resembling the conditioned danger cue as one of the more robust conditioning markers of anxiety pathology. Due to the absence of conditioning studies assessing generalization in generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), results of this meta-analysis ... Read more >>

Acceptance based behavior therapy for social anxiety disorder through videoconferencing.

Erica K Yuen, James D Herbert, Evan M Forman, Elizabeth M Goetter, Adrienne S Juarascio, Stephanie Rabin, Christina Goodwin, St├ęphane Bouchard,

Most individuals with social anxiety disorder (SAD) do not receive any type of treatment. Reasons include logistical barriers (e.g., geographic location, travel time), fear of stigmatization, and fear of the social interactions associated with seeking treatment. Videoconferencing technology holds great promise in the widespread delivery of evidence-based treatments to those ... Read more >>

Overgeneralization of conditioned fear as a pathogenic marker of panic disorder.

Shmuel Lissek, Stephanie Rabin, Randi E Heller, David Lukenbaugh, Marilla Geraci, Daniel S Pine, Christian Grillon,

<h4>Objective</h4>Classical conditioning features prominently in many etiological accounts of panic disorder. According to such accounts, neutral conditioned stimuli present during panic attacks acquire panicogenic properties. Conditioned stimuli triggering panic symptoms are not limited to the original conditioned stimuli but are thought to generalize to stimuli resembling those co-occurring with panic, ... Read more >>

Increased anxiety during anticipation of unpredictable aversive stimuli in posttraumatic stress disorder but not in generalized anxiety disorder.

Christian Grillon, Daniel S Pine, Shmuel Lissek, Stephanie Rabin, Omer Bonne, Meena Vythilingam,

<h4>Background</h4>Uncontrollability and unpredictability are key concepts related to re-experiencing, avoidance, and hypervigilance symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). However, little is known about the differential sensitivity of PTSD individuals to unpredictable stressors, relative to either healthy individuals or individuals with other anxiety disorders. This study tested the hypothesis that elevated ... Read more >>

Impaired discriminative fear-conditioning resulting from elevated fear responding to learned safety cues among individuals with panic disorder.

Shmuel Lissek, Stephanie J Rabin, Dana J McDowell, Sharone Dvir, Daniel E Bradford, Marilla Geraci, Daniel S Pine, Christian Grillon,

Classical fear-conditioning is central to many etiologic accounts of panic disorder (PD), but few lab-based conditioning studies in PD have been conducted. One conditioning perspective proposes associative-learning deficits characterized by deficient safety learning among PD patients. The current study of PD assesses acquisition and retention of discriminative aversive conditioning using ... Read more >>

Increased anxiety during anticipation of unpredictable but not predictable aversive stimuli as a psychophysiologic marker of panic disorder.

Christian Grillon, Shmuel Lissek, Stephanie Rabin, Dana McDowell, Sharone Dvir, Daniel S Pine,

<h4>Objective</h4>Predictability is a fundamental modulator of anxiety in that the ability to predict aversive events mitigates anxious responses. In panic disorder, persistent symptoms of anxiety are caused by anticipation of the next uncued (unpredictable) panic attack. The authors tested the hypothesis that elevated anxious reactivity, specifically toward unpredictable aversive events, ... Read more >>

Generalization of conditioned fear-potentiated startle in humans: experimental validation and clinical relevance.

Shmuel Lissek, Arter L Biggs, Stephanie J Rabin, Brian R Cornwell, Ruben P Alvarez, Daniel S Pine, Christian Grillon,

Though generalization of conditioned fear has been implicated as a central feature of pathological anxiety, surprisingly little is known about the psychobiology of this learning phenomenon in humans. Whereas animal work has frequently applied methods to examine generalization gradients to study the gradual weakening of the conditioned-fear response as the ... Read more >>
