Publication date: Available online 16 February 2019Source: Progress in Neuro-Psychopharmacology and Biological PsychiatryAuthor(s): Andrew Winter, Rebecca Ahlbrand, Renu SahAbstractIndividuals with fear-associated conditions such as panic disorder (PD) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) display increased emotional responses to interoceptive triggers, such as CO2 inhalation, that signal a threat to physiological homeostasis. Currently, effector systems and mechanisms underlying homeostatic modulation of fear memory are not well understood. In this regard, the renin angiotensin system (RAS), particularly the angiotensi...
