Excerpt

Investigations into anxiety states depend on a heuristic by which an individual becomes frightened of a novel stimulus and develops means to avoid this stimulus and its implied danger. These means include forming a short-term memory of the stimulus and consolidating this fleeting memory into a long-term memory associated with an avoidant behavior. The retained memories are dynamic and, when evoked by subsequent experience, are subject to change including retention (reconsolidation) or deletion (extinction). Anxiety is the emotional response to new and remembered frightening stimuli.
