From Rats to Humans

[New? Start here: https://meditationstuff.wordpress.com/articles/]

Schiller, D., Monfils, M. H., Raio, C. M., Johnson, D. C., LeDoux, J. E., & Phelps, E. A. (2009). Preventing the return of fear in humans using reconsolidation update mechanisms. Nature463(7277), 49-53.

I find myself skeptical because this was published in Nature. But LeDoux is solid, etc. Anyway, I should stop microposting, but this is really neat. No drugs involved.

UPDATE:

Ok, later studies have had mixed results. Seems like it exists but there’s as-yet unelucidated subtleties going on:

Agren, Thomas. “Human reconsolidation: A reactivation and update.” Brain research bulletin 105 (2014): 70-82.
