“Self Has Many Aspects”!!!!


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.
