Prediction Error Demarcates the Transition from Retrieval, to Reconsolidation, to New Learning
Sevenster, Dieuwke; Beckers, Tom; Kindt, Merel
Learning & Memory, v21 n11 p580-584 Nov 2014
Although disrupting reconsolidation is promising in targeting emotional memories, the conditions under which memory becomes labile are still unclear. The current study showed that post-retrieval changes in expectancy as an index for prediction error may serve as a read-out for the underlying processes engaged by memory reactivation. Minor environmental changes define whether retrieval induces memory reconsolidation or the initiation of a new memory trace even before fear extinction can be observed.
