Welcome to Traumeverden.net

Dette er et diskusjonsforum for deg som strever med angst og angstrelaterte tilstander (PTSD og/eller ulike former for dissosiasjon) hovedsakelig etter traumer. Traumet kan skyldes en enkelt hendelse eller flere hendelser som barnog/eller voksen. Ingen traumer er for små. Det viktigste er hvordan du har det i dag etter hendelsen. Dette forumet er til for å gi og få støtte, dele erfaringer på godt og vondt, se at du ikke er alene m.m. Det kan også være godt å ha et sted hvor du kan dele din historie og dine tanker med andre. Vi oppfordrer medlemmer til å ha en "moralsk taushetsplikt" om hva andre medlemmer deler av seg og sitt.

Somewhat unexpectedly, this brain center turns pain off, not on. It's located in an area where few people would have thought to look for an anti-pain center, the amygdala, which is often considered the home of negative emotions and responses, like the fight or flight response and general anxiety. A Duke University research team has found a small area of the brain in mice that can profoundly control the animals' sense of pain. Somewhat unexpectedly, this brain center turns pain off, not on. It's also located in an area where few people would have thought to look for an anti-pain center, the amygdala, which is often considered the home of negative emotions and responses, like the fight or flight response and general anxiety. "People do believe there is a central place to relieve pain, that's why placebos work," said senior author Fan Wang, the Morris N. Broad Distinguished Professor of neurobiology in the School of Medicine. "The question is where in the brain is the center that can turn off pain." "Most of the previous studies have focused on which regions are turned ON by pain," Wang said. "But there are so many regions processing pain, you'd have to turn them all off to stop pain. Whereas this one center can turn off the pain by itself." The work is a follow-up to earlier research in Wang's lab looking at neurons that are activated, rather than suppressed, by general anesthetics. In a 2019 study, they found that general anesthesia promotes slow-wave sleep by activating the supraoptic nucleus of the brain. But sleep and pain are separate, an important clue that led to the new finding, which appears online May 18 in Nature Neuroscience. The researchers found that general anesthesia also activates a specific subset of inhibitory neurons in the central amygdala, which they have called the CeAga neurons (CeA stands for central amygdala; ga indicates activation by general anesthesia). Mice have a relatively larger central amygdala than humans, but Wang said she had no reason to think we have a different system for controlling pain. Using technologies that Wang's lab has pioneered to track the paths of activated neurons in mice, the team found the CeAga was connected to many different areas of the brain, "which was a surprise," Wang said. By giving mice a mild pain stimulus, the researchers could map all of the pain-activated brain regions. They discovered that at least 16 brain centers known to process the sensory or emotional aspects of pain were receiving inhibitory input from the CeAga. "Pain is a complicated brain response," Wang said. "It involves sensory discrimination, emotion, and autonomic (involuntary nervous system) responses. Treating pain by dampening all of these brain processes in many areas is very difficult to achieve. But activating a key node that naturally sends inhibitory signals to these pain-processing regions would be more robust." Using a technology called optogenetics, which uses light to activate a small population of cells in the brain, the researchers found they could turn off the self-caring behaviors a mouse exhibits when it feels uncomfortable by activating the CeAga neurons. Paw-licking or face-wiping behaviors were "completely abolished" the moment the light was switched on to activate the anti-pain center. "It's so drastic," Wang said. "They just instantaneously stop licking and rubbing." When the scientists dampened the activity of these CeAga neurons, the mice responded as if a temporary insult had become intense or painful again. They also found that low-dose ketamine, an anesthetic drug that allows sensation but blocks pain, activated the CeAga center and wouldn't work without it. Now the researchers are going to look for drugs that can activate only these cells to suppress pain as potential future pain killers, Wang said. "The other thing we're trying to do is to (transcriptome) sequence the hell out of these cells," she said. The researchers are hoping to find the gene for a rare or unique cell surface receptor among these specialized cells that would enable a very specific drug to activate these neurons and relieve pain.

  3. Researchers show how characters from the movie 'Inside Out' hold the key to regulating emotions and behavior Date: October 3, 2019 Source: Society for Consumer Psychology Summary: Anthropomorphizing the emotion of sadness (thinking of sadness as a person) can decrease levels of sadness, which can help people consequently avoid making impulsive buying decisions. Impulsive shopping can be a costly vice for people who are eager to escape emotional pain, but researchers have now discovered a strategy for increasing self-control in spite of negative feelings. Pixar's "Inside Out" movie inspired the researchers to explore how anthropomorphic thinking -- thinking of emotions as people -- influenced the experience of emotions and subsequent consumption behaviors. They suspected that people who anthropomorphized sadness would psychologically detach from this negative emotion and feel less sad, which would increase the chances of making wiser buying decisions. The study findings are available online in the Journal of Consumer Psychology. The investigators tested their hypothesis by asking participants to write about a time when they felt very sad, such as after the loss of someone close to them. Then one group wrote about who sadness would be if it came to life as a person, while the second group wrote about what sadness would be like in terms of the emotional and affective impacts. Finally, both groups rated their levels of sadness on a scale of one to seven, and the results revealed that participants reported lower levels of sadness after they had written about the emotion as a person. People who had anthropomorphized sadness described the emotion in ways like 'a little girl walking slowly with her head down,' 'a pale person with no smile,' or 'someone with grey hair and sunken eyes,' said study author Li Yang of the University of Texas at Austin. By doing this, "people start to think of an emotion as a person who is separate from themselves, which makes them feel more detached from the sadness," she said. The researchers also tested whether the results were the same when participants anthropomorphized the emotion of happiness, and similarly, levels of happiness were lower for the group that described the emotion as a person. "It's probably not wise to apply this strategy for positive emotions because we do not want to minimize these good feelings," Yang said. Then the investigators explored whether decreased sadness led to better self-control when making decisions about what to buy. Like the first experiment, participants wrote about sad experiences; then one group anthropomorphized sadness by writing about it as a person. Next, the researchers asked people in both groups to select a side dish to accompany a lunch entrée, and the choices were cheesecake or a salad. The participants who had anthropomorphized sadness were more likely to choose the salad -- the healthier option that required more self-control. Then they repeated the experiment with a different consumption choice: a computer optimized for productivity versus a computer optimized for entertainment. This time, the participants thought about sadness as a person before encountering a specific sad event: throwing away an old laptop. Again, the participants who anthropomorphized sadness were more likely to select the practical computer option rather than the indulgent one. "Our study suggests that anthropomorphizing sadness may be a new way to regulate this emotion," Yang said. "Activating this mindset is a way to help people feel better and resist temptations that may not benefit them in the long-term."

  4. Du borde gå igenom minnet med nån bra PTSD terapeut, o försöka reda ut alla känslor runt minnet o allt som hände den gången
  5. Hei, ja det er et barndomsminne. Var ca 10 år da det skjedde.
  6. Vet du varifrån den rädslan kommer? är det nått barndomsminne det handlar om? Försök o hitta saker du bryr dig om som du kan göra, som kräver intellektuell koncentration men inte är så känslomässiga. -Det hade varit en fördel med fysisk rörelse med , men det blir väl lite svårt när det är svårt att gå ut
  7. Jeg har en rotte/musefobi som jeg har hatt siden jeg var barn. Har vært på eksponerings-behandling for noen år tilbake, men det hjalp bare en liten stund. Nå er fobien tilbake for fullt. I går fant jeg død rotte rett ved der jeg parkerer hjemme og etter det fungerer jeg ikke. Har panikk, kan ikke gå i dit alene, er helt satt ut, husker ikke avtaler, fungerer ikke i det hele tatt. Er det noen som har tips til hva jeg kan gjøre, hvor er det hjelp å få? Jeg vegrer meg for å gå ut med hunden fordi jeg har sett rotter ute, husker hvor jeg har sett de før og unngår steder der jeg har sett de og der jeg mistenker at det finnes. Egentlig helt håpløst for meg og de rundt meg. Jeg er helt oppgitt over hele situasjonen. Det tar over livet mitt og det blir bare verre og verre. Det går ikke en dag uten at jeg kjenner på frykten flere ganger i løpet av dagen.
