The neural basis of Pavlovian fear conditioning is well understood and depends upon neural processes within the amygdala. Stress is known to play a role in the modulation of fear-related behavior, including Pavlovian fear conditioning. Chronic restraint stress has been shown to enhance fear conditioning to discrete and contextual stimuli; however, the time course and extent of restraint that is essential for this modulation of fear learning remains unclear. Thus, we tested the extent to which a single exposure to 1 hr of restraint would alter subsequent auditory fear conditioning in rats.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
