By Frederic Perez-Alvarez, Carme Timoneda-Gallart

The elemental objective of this booklet is to speak a brand new realizing of human behaviour via considering how either cognition and emotion exist at a neurological point. Neurological facts can now clarify how cognition and emotion paintings interactively. which means every time the mind is mentally working, either cognition and emotion are operating. the ultimate end result of this inner task is/may be an exterior behaviour. during this feel, talking, examining, studying, consuming, melancholy, nervousness, etc are all behaviours produced through primary neurological mechanisms now we have been conscious of because the Nineties. The neurological facts is predicated on numerous tools of analysis, one instance is the most recent useful magnetic resonance in people. This booklet offers a proof of standard functionality to be by means of an evidence of dysfunctional behaviour.

Example text

If so, we can assume that this previous unconscious processing influences conscious-declarative decision-making. Strikingly, the more painful consequence follows decision-making, the more intense is the skin conductance activity [Bechara, 2004; Bechara & Damasio, 1997; Bechara et al. 1997; 1999; 2000, 2005]. From human clinical evidence, years ago we knew that the decision-making process has to do with the prefrontal cortex [Stuss & Benson, 1986; Fuster, 1989]. Later, we knew that two prefrontal cortex can be differentiated-dissociated.

Pp. 779; Guyton & Hall, 1996]. This evidence would allow us to postulate that an over-stimulation (extreme suffering) acting on the painful feeling processing center would be needed to defuse the protective response (masked behavior) in cases of highly resistance masked behavior. If so, compensating behaviors which provide pleasant compensation must disappear as a necessary condition to achieve success in therapy. This line of thought is in accordance with the principles of primal psychology. In the guideline chapter we will return to that.

Since LeDoux [LeDoux, 1996, 2000], the feeling neurocircuitry in regard to bad feelings (fear / danger) has been described. LeDoux and coworkers have demonstrated how fear is unconsciously processed in such a way that the amygdala becomes the primary control center that shoots uncontrolled automatic defensive response as a security mechanism, which means that amygdala action is not controlled by neocortex action depending on the degree of fear processing. Either impulsivity or hyperactivity or aggressive behavior, indeed, can be considered different behavioral patterns of failure of impulse control and they have been experimentally reproduced.
