Memories of fears: How the brain stores and retrieves traumatic experiences

Description

In this chapter, Dr. Perry explores how the brain "stores and retrieves physiologic states, feelings, behaviors and thoughts from traumatic events", and illustrates these issues with several case examples of traumatized children and adolescents. Concluding sections focus on vulnerable children and the law, and on transgenerational memory in society and culture. Four figures and 59 references are included in this online version.
