Sample text

In one sense, it is obvious that a rat should first run directly away from a cat, as this means it is least likely to get caught. However, more mechanistically, we can say that, at a very short distance, the effect of the cat is strong and so produces avoidance, while the effect of very distant safety is weak and so produces minimal approach. The reverse is true at the other end of the rat’s trajectory: at II.  APPROACH/AVOIDANCE intermediate distances, we see a balance of push and pull in operation, with both tendencies generating much the same running movements.

As shown in Figure 8, the relatively small II.  APPROACH/AVOIDANCE FIGURE 8 Pharmacology of avoidance and behavioral inhibition (BIS). Anxiolytic drugs—5HT1A agonists, BDZ—act (blue shading) on struc- tures of the BIS to reduce the effects of goal conflict but do not affect active avoidance behaviors. More complex forms of anxiety tend to be less affected (lighter shading). Panicolytic drugs—via 5HT and NA transporter and breakdown systems—act (purple shading) on structures of the avoidance system to reduce panic and avoidance and also on structures of the BIS (where increased 5HT leads to increased 5HT1A activation) to reduce goal conflict.

Approach-avoidance) conflict (the BIS). , the value of food will depend on the current level of hunger). Simple actions (like running) can fulfill both approach and avoidance goals, and so a substantial part of the frontal cortex, basal ganglia, and thalamus can be ignored 33 (Figure 6) if we are interested in differences between approach and avoidance systems, which we expect to involve limbic goal control areas. ) At the state level, for each of approach and avoidance, we should expect activation of specific modules of distinct hierarchically organized systems spanning the caudal subcortex through to the rostral cortex.
