RE: Split Personality? A Conversation About Dissociative Identity Disorder

in StemSocial3 months ago

Thanks A.G. for explanining this subject of dissociative disorders. Interesting how this condition may have to do with the size of the Hippocampal. "Hippocampal volume was 19.2% smaller and amygdalar volume was 31.6% smaller in the patients with dissociative identity disorder, compared to the healthy subjects.”

People do suffer greatly with these conditions and their families also.


Hi @redheadpei,
Thank you for visiting and for your generous tip. My understanding of the hippocampus is that it plays a vital role in emotions and memories. So, I guess it makes sense that there would be alteration there in a person experiencing profound personality changes. The tragedy of mental illness is that we understand it so poorly.

Thanks again for reading and commenting.
