Post Relationship with mother leaves its mark on the brain

This BrainEthics blog entry describes recent research studying the neurology of attachment.

Along with a brief discussion of the experimental protocols, there are several good links to related background material.

Thomas Ramsoy, the author of the blog entry notes with surprise:

Quote:
So having an insecure attachment style leads to higher activation to attachment-related primes. Taken together, this result demonstrates a role for amygdala in mediating attatchment relevant behaviour. Indeed, it is interesting to see how a phylogenetic “old” limbic structure is involved in an interpersonal psychological process, which is normally thought to involve more prefrontal cortical regions.
