Overview

Translational neuroscience offers the opportunity to move from 'bench to bedside'; from animal models to normal humans and ultimately to understanding the development and the treatment of psychiatric disorders. Recent studies have shown that there is a sensitive period during adolescence with regard to fear regulation. Adolescent mice and humans as compared to their younger and older counterparts exhibit poor extinction learning in experimental paradigms. In clinical samples of anxious adolescents, extinction based CBT also appears to be less effective. In this course we will review the development of extinction learning in animals, humans and clinical samples. The course will also discuss the implication of these translational neuroscience findings for the treatment of anxious adolescents transitioning to adulthood.
