If the amygdala is lesioned, the rat responds to the cage but not to the tone (Kim and Fanselow 1992).

This theory thus accommodates the evidence already detailed above that a variety of challenges is capable of precipitating panic attacks. The postulated abnormally sensitive fear circuit responds to unsettling afferent sensory information, which would normally be tolerated, by setting in train the autonomic responses and also accompanying cognitions characteristic of panic disorder. The SSRIs may serve to damp down this autonomic arousal and benzodiazepines may modulate the impaired appraisal of threat, which leads to these characteristic cognitions (Middleton 1991) (Figure 9).

It has been suggested, however, that this is an oversimplification of the course of panic, arising from methodological short comings of the follow-up studies (Katschnig and Amering 1998). Patient selection bias has been blamed for producing a worse overall outcome than in real life (Shinoda et al 1999). This is explained by the fact that patients with a quick recovery would stop attending follow-up sessions, so that subjects remaining in these studies represent more severely ill patients than the general population of patients with panic disorder.
