Prefrontal Cortex Optimal Performance

2beaware has this great entry up right now called The Wolves Within, by Debbie Hampton. Heres a really intriguing snip from it..

“In their book, Power Up Your Brain, The Neuroscience of Enlightenment, David Perlmutter and Alberto Villodo, write that healing your body and brain and creating a state of synergy will allow the talents of the prefrontal cortex to be fully expressed.  They say we are biologically programmed for this as they are the gifts of our humanness: bliss, generosity, peace and compassion. These traits and this area’s highest function is blocked and silenced by the fear, violence, and trauma in the world today.  The author’s posit that the prefrontal cortex has to be performing optimally to diminish the more primitive, instinctual regions of the brain and the corresponding fight or flight behaviors to allow the more evolved traits to be expressed.”

You know what I’m thinking right?

Look again… These traits and this area’s highest function is blocked and silenced by the fear, violence, and trauma in the world today.  The author’s posit that the prefrontal cortex has to be performing optimally to diminish the more primitive, instinctual regions of the brain and the corresponding fight or flight behaviors to allow the more evolved traits to be expressed.”

  1. They are proving without a doubt that adoptees do have trauma which can affect us emotionally our entire lives – pretty somber reality, huh?
