ARACHNOPHOBIA

Also, scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences investigated the origins of this aversion in six-month-old babies - too young to have already developed a phobia of spiders - and found that arachnophobia is also determined by genetic components, so there may be an "innate fear" of spiders. So the arachnophibia is Hereditary.
Arachnophobia is an acute feeling of visceral rejection or illogical fear of spiders. This animosity towards spiders is - along with the fear of snakes - one of the most common and widespread phobias worldwide. Widely studied since 1991, research by cognitive scientist Graham Davey concluded that up to 75% of people suffer from a mild to moderate fear of spiders.Arachnophobia is believed to stem from the fear of our ancestors, as in the Middle Ages spiders were accused of transmitting the Black Death and of having a deadly poison.
