Nothing to fear? Neural systems supporting avoidance behavior in healthy youths

Date: August 15, 2010
Creator: Schlund, Michael W.; Siegle, Greg J.; Ladouceur, Cecile D.; Silk, Jennifer S.; Cataldo, Michael F.; Forbes, Erika E. et al.
Description: This article discusses neural systems supporting avoidance behavior in healthy youths.

Establishing the generality of nonhuman findings to healthy children is a needed first step towards advancing developmental affective neuroscience research on avoidance in childhood anxiety. Accordingly, this investigation examined brain activation patterns to threatening cues that prompted avoidance in healthy youths.
