2016 Nature Communications  
Exploiting this sensitive period of neural development, we modified existing behavioural interventions in an age-specific manner to attenuate adolescent fear memories persistently into adulthood.  ...  Fear can be highly adaptive in promoting survival, yet it can also be detrimental when it persists long after a threat has passed.  ...  Total volume of brain regions were estimated by using Cavalieri estimator and total cell numbers were estimated by Fractionator with counting frame size 25 Â 25 Â 40 mm and sampling grid size 100 Â 100  ...
