With reference to research from the fields of neurophysiology and psychoanalytic theory, this paper gives an overview of the present understanding of how trauma is processed and the possible aetiology of multiple self-states. Clinical examples of a variety of self-states are given and thought about in terms of neuroception. Finally, some thoughts on clinical implications of treatment are offered.

The hypothesis being proposed is that the experience-dependent maturation of the orbitalfrontal cortex in early abusive environments, characterized by discontinuity in dyadic socioaffective interactions between the infant and the caregiver, may be responsible for a pattern of lateral inhibition between conflicting subsets of self-representations which are normally integrated into a unified self.
