Abstract

This review provides both a biological and clinical perspective on Time-Dependent Sensitization (TDS), an ancient amplified memory response to threat manifest in the ability of both drugs and nondrug stressors to induce neuronal and behavioral effects which strengthen entirely as a function of the passage of time following even a single or acute exposure. Evidence is presented to show that TDS may be involved in the development of a spectrum of diseases and how drug regimens based on the principles of TDS could provide a novel and revolutionary means of treating psychiatric and other illnesses.
