The Concept of Behavioral Inhibition

(p.3) 1 The Concept of Behavioral Inhibition
Extreme Fear, Shyness, and Social Phobia

Jerome Kagan

Oxford University Press

This volume presents a review of the current state of knowledge on fear and its pathological expressions. Two of the most common psychiatric disorders — anxiety and mood disorders — involve dysregulation of some sort in components of the fear system. The study of fear demonstrates a noteworthy development in the science of emotion where continuous two-way interaction regularly occurs between scientists studying the phenomena in animals at more basic levels and those studying it in humans at more integrative levels.

Keywords:   fear, anxiety, mood disorders, psychiatric disorders, dysregulation, emotion, animals, humans
