Neurobiologie der Angst: Der GABA-Benzodiazepin-Rezeptorkomplex

Conference paper

Zusammenfassung

Angst ist eine wesentliche Komponente menschlichen Verhaltens und psychiatrischer Erkrankungen. Die Angst spielt neben dem Schmerz eine essentielle Rolle für das Überleben des Menschen. Angst und Furcht können betrachtet werden als die kognitiven und emotionalen Begleiterscheinungen eines Alarmsystems (sog. „Fight-or-flight“-Antwort), das dazu dient, den Organismus darauf vorzubereiten, auf eine drohende Gefahr zu reagieren.
