This study describes a novel training protocol to assess phasic/sustained fear in freely behaving mice, using freezing and/or fear-potentiated startle as measures of fear. Findings are that (1) a motion sensitive platform enables measurement of startle responses in freely behaving mice, (2) absence or presence of startle stimuli during retrieval as well as unpredictability of a given threat determine phasic/sustained fear response profiles and(3) both freezing and startle responses indicate phasic/sustained components of fear, with sustained freezing reflecting unpredictability of conditioned stimulus (CS)/unconditioned stimulus (US) pairings.
