Investigation of Extinction Learning in Multi-context Paradigm
9
2018
Exposure therapy is a widely used method to treat specific phobias. In a clinical setting, it often suggests an interaction between a participant and real fearful stimulus, such as a living spider. But this paradigm is not always suitable for the scientific purposes where a standardization of stimuli is highly important. In the presented project, we have explored whether it is possible to increase the efficacy of pictorial stimuli if the fearful objects are presented in several different contexts. The results are ambiguous: there is no difference between single context group and multiple contexts group in a behavioral level, but there is a significant difference in skin galvanic response after the exposure.
