Being anxious is an adaptive response to an unfamiliar environment, especially when confronted with danger or threat. However, pathological variants of anxiety can strongly impede the daily life of those affected. To unravel neurobiological mechanisms underlying normal anxiety as well as its pathologi- 36 F.

The upper panel illustrates a typical learning curve. Subsequential phases are connected by arrows; still-uncertain interrelations are indicated by question marks. The lower panel shows some of the most promising targets for the pharmacotherapy of aversive memories. Consolidation, reconsolidation and extinction share a variety of cellular processes and, consequently, a common set of potential therapeutic targets.
