Margraf, J., Ehlers, A., Roth, W.T. (1986). Sodium lactate infusions and panic attacks: A review and critique. Psychosomatic Medicine, 48, 23-51. (ISI Citations: 146).
One of Margraf's influential review papers that changed the direction of the field. The paper showed that the experimental evidence for widely held assumption that response to lactate infusions is a biological marker for panic attacks was flawed and suggested alternative psychological mechanisms.

Margraf, J., Taylor, C.B., Ehlers, A., Roth, W.T., Agras, W.S. (1987). Panic attacks in the natural environment. Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease, 175, 558-565. (ISI Citations: 170).
This classic paper was the first to use ambulatory monitoring to gather systematic data on spontaneous panic attacks. It demonstrated a discrepancy between self-reports of heart racing and objective heart rate during these attacks.

Margraf, J., Barlow, D.H., Clark, D.M., Telch, M.J. (1993). Psychological treatment of panic: Work in progress on outcome, active ingredients, and follow-up. Behaviour Research and Therapy, 31, 1-8. (ISI citations: 122)

Maercker, A., Michael, T., Fehm, L., Becker, E., Margraf, J. (2004). Age of traumatisation as a predictor of post-traumatic stress disorder or major depression in young women. British Journal of Psychiatry, 184, 482-487. (ISI citations: 75)
One of Margraf's epidemiological studies showing that traumatisation in childhood is associated with enhanced risk for major depression and posttraumatic stress disorder, whereas traumatisation in adolescence is associated with enhanced risk for posttraumatic stress disorder only.

Blechert, J., Michael, T., Margraf, J., & Wilhelm, F. H. (2007). Fear conditioning in posttraumatic stress disorder: Evidence for delayed extinction of autonomic experiential, and behavioural responses. Behaviour Research and Therapy, 45, 2019-2033. (ISI citations: 122)
One of Margraf's influential experimental studies demonstrating that patients with posttraumatic stress disorder show delayed extinction learning, which is thought to maintain fear responses to innocuous stimuli that are associated with their trauma.

De Quervain, D. & Margraf, J. (2008). Glucocorticoids for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder and phobias: A novel therapeutic approach. European Journal of Pharmacology, 583, 365-371. (ISI citations: 66)
This influential paper suggested the possibility that administration of low doses of cortisol enhances the therapeutic effects of exposure-based treatments in anxiety disorders and posttraumatic stress disorder and provided supporting data from systematic case studies.

De Quervain, D., Bentz, D., Michael, T., Bolt, O., Wiederhold, B., Margraf, J., Wilhelm, F.H. (2011). Glucocorticoids enhance extinction-based psychotherapy. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 108, 6621-6625. (ISI citations: 58)
This placebo-controlled treatment experiment demonstrated that cortisol enhances efficacy of exposure therapy in phobias.

Important study showing that successful treatment of parents' panic disorder is associated with lower psychopathology of their children at long-term follow-up compared to children of parents with untreated panic disorder.

Woud, M.L., Zhang, X., Becker, E.S., McNally, R.S., Margraf, J (2014). Don´t panic: Interpretation bias is predictive of new onsets of panic disorder. Journal of Anxiety Disorders, 28, 83-87.
A prospective epidemiological study demonstrating that a specific interpretation bias predicted onset of panic disorder.
