Following observations in the literature that sensory cortex ablations prevent extinction of conditioned fear, the present experiments tested the generality of this finding by examining whether visual cortex ablations would prevent extinction of conditioned fear as assessed by fear-potentiated startle using a visual conditioned stimulus. Consistent with previous reports, visual cortex ablations did not prevent the acquisition or expression of fear-potentiated startle to a visual conditioned… CONTINUE READING
