Spontaneous recovery

what is spontaneous recovery?

When you have a conditioned response that randomly comes back even though you thought it had been extinguised. Like I’m a big, brave adult, and I am not scared of the basement demons. That being said, I totally ran up the stairs away from the basement demons last night because that fear randomly came back.
