"I believe that evolution-prepared dissociation is the original root of human dissociation. But — and this is a big but — I also believe that evolution-prepared dissociation is not the chronic dissociation of persons with posttraumatic and dissociative disorders. Chronic dissociation seems to be a phenomenon of the human neocortex. Still, there may (or may not be) important links between chronic dissociative symptoms and the mid-brain structures of evolution-prepared dissociation".

The Evolutionary Link Between Trauma and Dissociation

THE MOTOR CORTEX	 		THE BASAL GANGLIA		THE CEREBELLUM		THE ACTIVATION SEQUENCE FOR THE MOTOR AREAS So many different structures in the brain are involved in motor functions that some people even say that practically the entire brain contributes to body movements. Though the motor cortex is usually associated with Areas 4 and 6, the control of voluntary movements actually involves almost all areas of the neocortex.

A normal response to stimuli send messages through the neocortex to be categorized. In an amygdala hijacking, the stimuli goes straight through the amygdala and the reaction is laced with fear and self-preservation.

While the brain may be relatively small compared to other parts of the body, the neo-cortex happens to be relatively large compared to the brain. As a matter of fact, the neo-cortex in the human brain is much larger than any other species of animal on the planet. This part of the brain is one reason why humans have become capable of so much. It has allowed us to transform from a primitive species into a technological one.

A single gene that is found only in Homo species may partly explain why the human neocortex, the seat of higher cognitive functions, is so large.

What is anger? How can those recovering from trauma use anger proactively as part of the healing process? How can we distinguish between anger related to developmental challenges (for example anger due to abandonment as a child), versus anger lodged in the nervous system after an impactful traumatic event ("fight response", "flash rage"), versus anger…

Parallel Memories: Putting Emotions Back Into The Brain  We have to put emotion back into the brain and integrate it with cognitive systems. We shouldn't study emotion or cognition in isolation, but should study both as aspects of the mind in its brain.    Neuroscientist Joseph LeDoux seeks a biological rather than psychological understanding of our emotions. He explores the differences between emotional memories (implicit--unconscious--memories) processed in pathways that take information…
