(NIH/National Institute of Mental Health) A study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, part of the NIH, has shed light on the neurocomputational contributions to the development of post-traumatic stress disorder in combat veterans. The findings revealed distinct patterns for how the brain and body respond to learning danger and safety depending on the severity of PTSD symptoms. These findings could help explain why symptoms of PTSD can be severe for some people but not others. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Escape from Trauma: Dissociation and Development of Identity
Dissociation may be thought of simply as disconnection or disruption. In terms of posttraumatic stress disorder, we talk about dissociation as a disruption in four different areas of functioning: identity, memory, consciousness, self-awareness, and awareness of surroundings. In understanding the human response to trauma, it is thought that dissociation is a central defense mechanism because it provides a method of escape 1. When physical escape is impossible, dissociation provides a type of mental escape. Those who experience dissociation may notice lapses in memory of certain time periods or events. Personal information ...
