Dissociation and Interaction between
Prediction Levels and Stimulus Properties in Conditioned Fear
Abstract: Conditioned fear is caused by not only stimulus properties but also prediction level. Then what dissociation and interaction are between prediction levels and stimulus properties? Using event-related potentials (ERP), prediction levels were divided as unprediction and prediction; stimulus properties were divided as neutral and aversion stimulus. Use 2 × 2 within-subjects experimental design, to explore the dissociation between prediction levels and stimulus properties in the acquisition phase of conditioned fear. These data found that: the ERP between the stimulus properties had a significant difference at an early stage of processing under prediction; the ERP between the stimulus properties did not have a significant difference at an early stage of processing under unprediction; the ERP of different stimulus properties had a significant difference under different prediction levels. The results showed there were dissociation and interaction between prediction levels and stimulus properties in conditioned fear.
