A Stusy of TMS For Extinction about Early Traumatic Memory Description

Abstract

Individuals will experience strong traumatic memories after traumatic events such as earthquakes, car accidents, or loss of loved ones, the most common of which is fear memory. In this experiment, a multi-sensory compound stimulation model (electric stimulation + picture) was used as the conditional stimulus, and the skin electrical response was used as the index of fear response. The effect of retrieval-extinction paradigm on the conditional fear extinction was tested. In addition, high-frequency rTMS was introduced as a treatment.To explore the therapeutic effect of TMS on conditional fear, with the aim of providing new measures for the treatment of PTSD.
