46. Characterising Algorithms for Threat Learning

      Anxiety disorders often entail exaggerated threat prediction. Here, we address computational algorithms for learning threat prediction, using discriminative delay fear conditioning in healthy humans. Fear conditioning is suggested to implement a prediction error-based reinforcement learning (PERL) algorithm, but more general theories of brain function imply probabilistic computations.
