There is also some evidence suggesting that the amygdala, or "fear center", in people with anxiety disorders is overly-sensitive. McLeod, Saul (2007). Simple Psychology.

This reconditioning is called counterconditioning. This is usually done by a process known as systematic desensitization. Treatment from a cognitive perspective involves therapy aimed at changing the way you think of the things that scare you. With social phobia, the process involves modifying thoughts the center on the likelihood of social failure or rejection. This is called cognitive restructuring. The biological perspective uses medications to adjust your levels of certain neurotransmitters such as seratonin and GABA. A selective-seratonin-reuptake-inhibitor (SSRI) is often the first choice. Note: most treatments involve combining perspectives. Medication especially, is rarely prescribed without therapy. * Most common perspective on treatment an eclectic therapy that combines the behavior and cognitive perspectives is called rational-emotive.
