FRAT: An amygdala-centered model of fear conditioning (Krasne et al. 2011)

Model of Pavlovian fear conditioning and extinction (due to neuromodulator-controlled LTP on principal cells and inhibory interneurons)occur in amygdala and contextual representations are learned in hippocampus. Many properties of fear conditioning are accounted for.

Model Type: Realistic Network

Region(s) or Organism(s): Amygdala

Model Concept(s): Learning

Simulation Environment: MATLAB

Implementer(s): Krasne, Frank [krasne at]
