Sample text

Jedoch wurde das Gehirn der Säugetiere nicht dazu erfunden, um Naturwissenschaftlern das Handwerk zu erleichtern. Es zeigt sich, dass im Falle eines moderaten Stromschlags die Aktivierung der ventralen periaquäduktalen Grauen Substanz – einer Gruppe von Neuronen, die Axone zum Hirnstamm senden – zu einem überwachsamen Zustand führten, der das Tier auf die Möglichkeit der Gefahr vorbereitet. Die potenzierte Schreckreaktion ist eine Komponente des Zustands, zum Teil weil der zentrale Nukleus der Amygdala Projektionen über die ventrale Graue Substanz zum Kern des Hirnstamms aussendet, welcher den motorischen Teil der körperlichen Schreckreaktion stimuliert.

Der Begriff der »Furcht« bedarf dringend einer solchen 61 Differenzierung. Wenn jemand liest, dass »Furcht von einem neuralen Regelkreis abhängt, der die Unversehrtheit des Thalamus und des Mandelkerns voraussetzt«, wird er dieser Feststellung eine Bedeutung entnehmen; doch leider sind die Bedeutungen, die sich daraus entnehmen lassen, verschieden. Neurowissenschaft ler denken dabei an Ratten, die bei Erschallen eines Tons, der mit Schmerzempfinden verbunden ist, erstarren. Klinische Psychologen und Psychotherapeuten denken an Patienten, die von ihrer Furcht berichten, ein Restaurant zu besuchen.

25 Ein Experiment untermauert auf überzeugende Weise die Ansicht, dass es keinen einzelnen Furchtzustand gibt. Ratten, die in ein Labyrinth gesetzt wurden, das einige hell erleuchtete Gänge enthielt, zogen dunklere vor, vermutlich weil das Licht Furcht hervorrief. Sie vermieden ebenso ein Objekt, das bei Berührung einen Stromstoß aussendete. Auch hier vermuten wir, dass die Vermeidung in Furcht gründet. Die Vermeidung der hellen Gänge beansprucht jedoch eine Hirnstruktur, die Septum genannt wird, aber nicht den Mandelkern.
