  • Don't forget...
    In everyday life we are continually confronted with situations where previously learned information is no longer valid – a phenomenon that psychologists refer to as “extinction learning”. Researchers are seeking to understand the associated mechanisms at behav- ioural, neural and clinical level, using pigeons and humans as models. In the long term this research could help us to develop better treatments for phobia patients.
