A question that has engaged clinicians for decades is why some people develop anxiety disorders and others do not. Most people respond with terror during a fearful experience, but the fact that only a few of them develop a disorder indicates that people may form a completely different memory of a similar event. The aim of Renée Visser’s research is to disentangle different neural processes involved in the formation and expression of human fear memory.
