  • Research with adult animals suggests that extinction depends, at least partly, on new inhibitory learning that is specific to the context in which it is learned. However, several recent studies show that extinction processes are dissociated across development. The present article reviews research on the behavioral and neurobiological mechanisms underlying extinction in developing rats. To summarize, postweanling aged rats (i.e., 24-day-olds) display adult-like extinction in that they show… CONTINUE READING
