“Self Has Many Aspects”!!!!

Wow!!

C PTSD - A Way Out


.

“The many aspects of self are based on structures and processes spread throughout the brain and nervous system, and embedded in the body’s interactions with the world.
.
Researchers categorize those aspects of self, and their neural underpinnings, in a variety of ways. For example, the , self (“I am solving a problem”) likely arises mainly in neural connections among the anterior cingulate cortex, upper-outer prefrontal cortex (PFC), and hippocampus; the self (“I am upset”) emerges from the amygdala, hypothalamus, striatum (part of the basal ganglia), and upper brain stem (Lewis and Todd 2007).
.
Different parts of your brain recognize your face in group photos, know about your personality, experience personal responsibility, and look at situations from your perspective rather than someone else’s”

.
.
The self is smaller and more fragmented than ever conceived. The “I”is tinier than once thought.
