(Revision #1)

1) The chronically aroused FEAR system can produce a freeze response i) a type of hypoactive (sluggish/inattentive) anxiety, and the chronically aroused FEAR system can also produce a flight response ii) a type of hyperactive anxiety.

2)The chronically overaroused PANIC/GRIEF system (separation anxiety/separation depression) can produce i) a type of hyperactive anxiety and ii) a type of hypoactive (sluggish/inattentive) depression.

3) (feel free to add to the list)
