Humanities Center Public Lecture: Forgetting Fear

Daniela Schiller, professor of neuroscience and of psychiatry
PI, Schiller Lab for Affective Neuroscience, The Friedman Brain Institute, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

In extreme situations, when emotional memories become traumatic, we wish to diminish our emotional responses and even “erase” emotional memories altogether.

Professor Schiller describes neuroimaging, pharmacology, and psychophysiology research geared toward understanding the neural mechanisms that make such emotional flexibility and examines evidence for neural emotional processing in the normal brain and in patients with anxiety disorders with the hope of promoting new forms of treatment.
