Fear can be conceived as a functional defense behavior system representing a part of the innate species-specific behavioral repertoire (ethogram), basic to the survival of individuals and species. Its function is to protect living beings against dangerous, threatening and aversive situations. A distinction is made between anticipatory defense behaviors released by potential dangers and those elicited by effective dangers, especially predators. The neural mechanisms serving the defense system… Expand
