Content By: Papalini, S., Beckers, T., and Vervliet, B. (2020). Dopamine: from prediction error to psychotherapy, Translational Psychiatry, 10(164), 1-13.

Course Description: Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that codes prediction errors governing reward and fear extinction learning. Psychotherapy is also a form of error-based learning; it challenges faulty cognitions and behavior patterns for long-term cognitive and emotional change. The application of a dopamine prediction error perspective relative to psychotherapy, in conjunction with pharmacological and non-pharmacological intervention implementation, can enhance the acquisition of safety memories. Future studies should investigate dopamine-oriented drugs that can effectively maximize long-term fear extinction learning consolidation post therapy, as well as interventions that evidence prefrontal dopaminergic effects.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review the literature regarding prediction errors and dopamine as a central neuromodulator
  2. Consider exposure-based therapies as explained in the article and the positive impact of each therapy-type on fear
  3. Understand the suggested areas and direction for related future research studies

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand Dopamine: from prediction error to psychotherapy
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Consider the role of dopamine and psychotherapy as prediction error measures
  • Work through the posttest questions; answer selections should be derived from the accompanying article
  • Return to the referenced article for any missed questions and/or to better understand the role dopamine and psychotherapy play in the long-term consolidation of memories and fear
