Fear in Humans and Nonhuman Animals
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

Fear is a physiological, behavioral, and emotional reaction to stimuli that an animal encounters (Horwitz, 2013). In many species across the animal kingdom, the physiological reaction results in an increase in heart rate, increased respiratory rate (panting), sweating, trembling, pacing, and possibly urination and defecation. Fear is an appropriate response to environments and stimuli that are potentially harmful to the animal, which could utilize a creature’s fight or flight response and preserve its life. In this resource, fear of human and nonhuman animals, along with potential treatments for fear disorders, is explored and reviewed.
