Childhood trauma, indicate areas of the brain for PTSD: prefrontal cortex, amygdala and the hippocampus. Explanation of the areas of the brain along with reference to a genetic predisposition toward PTSD should be provided about with smallest hippocampus, hyperarousal amygdala and insufficient top down control by the media prefrontal cortex and hippocampus particularly during extinction.
Other areas indicate for PTSD are the anterior angulate, the thalamus and basal ganglia. With reference to BPD target areas of the brain, like PTSD include the amygdala, hippocampus, the pre frontal cortex should include. Compared PTSD, the amygdala is smaller, the HPA axis should be indicate for both.
