Abstract Maternal dissociative symptoms which can be comorbid with interpersonal violence-related post-traumatic stress disorder (IPV-PTSD) have been linked to decreased sensitivity and responsiveness to children’s emotional communication. This study examined the influence of dissociation on neural activation independently of IPV-PTSD symptom severity when mothers watch video-stimuli of their children during stressful and non-stressful mother–child interactions. Based on previous observations… Expand
Violence-related PTSD and neural activation when seeing emotionally charged male-female interactions.
TLDR
The fact that IPV-PTSD participants compared with HC showed lower activity of the ventral ACC during emotionally charged scenes regardless of the valence of the scenes suggests that impaired social perception among IPV theses patients transcends menacing contexts and generalizes to a wider variety of emotionally charged male-female interactions.

Title: Violence-related Ptsd and Neural Activation When Seeing Emotionally Charged Male-female Interactions Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Advance Access Published Ptsd and Male-female Interactions in Fmri 1 Ptsd and Male-female Interactions in Fmri 2
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a disorder that involves impaired regulation of the fear response to traumatic reminders. This study tested how women with maleperpetrated interpersonalExpand
The relation of general socio-emotional processing to parenting specific behavior: a study of mothers with and without posttraumatic stress disorder
TLDR
The dlPFC activity findings support the idea that the efficiency of top-down control of socio-emotional processing in non-parenting specific contexts may be predictive of parenting behavior. Expand
PTSD with and without dissociation in young children exposed to interpersonal trauma.
TLDR
Findings suggest that subgroups of children may be especially vulnerable to comorbid PTSD and dissociation, and implications for treatment are discussed. Expand
Individuals with the post-traumatic stress disorder process emotions in subcortical regions irrespective of cognitive engagement: a meta-analysis of cognitive and emotional interface
TLDR
Underactivity in the emotional and cognitive processing intermediary cortex was especially prominent in individuals with PTSD relative to the NC population following exposure to emotional stimuli, which may explain the trauma-related fear, irritability, and negative effects as well as the concentration difficulties during cognitive distress associated with emotional arousal. Expand
Emotion regulation strategies in trauma-related disorders: pathways linking neurobiology and clinical manifestations
TLDR
The present review has sought to link neurobiology findings concerning cortico-limbic function to the field of emotion regulation and found that trauma-related disorders have been placed in a continuum between under- and over-regulation of affect strategies. Expand
Maternal Trauma and Related Psychopathology: Consequences to Parental Brain Functioning Associated with Caregiving
The chapter takes as its departure point the Winnicottian notion of “Good-enough mothering” as being tied to the capacity of the primary caregiver to engage in mutual emotion regulation duringExpand

TLDR
There is preliminary cross-sectional evidence that dissociative disorders and posttraumatic stress disorders may mediate the relationship between psychological trauma and NSSI and SI/SA. Expand
The maternal brain in women with a history of early-life maltreatment: an imagination-based fMRI study of conflictual versus pleasant interactions with children.
TLDR
It is suggested that for mothers with early-life maltreatment, conflictual interactions with their child may be more salient and behaviourally relevant than pleasant interactions, and that their salience network is poorly modulated by the brain regions involved in mentalizing processes. Expand
In Search of Neural Endophenotypes of Postpartum Psychopathology and Disrupted Maternal Caregiving
TLDR
This is a selective review that provides the context for the study of perinatal affective disorder mechanisms and outlines directions for future research along neural networks of interest for affective disorders and maternal caregiving. Expand

An fMRI study of the brain responses of traumatized mothers to viewing their toddlers during separation and play.
TLDR
P PTSD mothers' may not have access to frontocortical regulation of limbic response upon seeing own and unfamiliar children in separation, which converges with previously reported associations of maternal IPV-PTSD and atypical caregiving behavior following separation. Expand
Brain activation during script-driven imagery induced dissociative responses in PTSD: a functional magnetic resonance imaging investigation
TLDR
Differences observed clinically, psychophysiologically, and neurobiologically between patients who respond to traumatic script-driven imagery with dissociative versus nondissociative responses may suggest different neuronal mechanisms underlying these two distinct reactions. Expand
Pain sensitivity and neural processing during dissociative states in patients with borderline personality disorder with and without comorbid posttraumatic stress disorder: a pilot study.
TLDR
The results showed that the script-driven imagery method is capable of inducing dissociative states in participants with BPD with and without comorbid PTSD, and these states were characterized by reduced pain sensitivity and a frontolimbic activation pattern, which resembles the findings in participation with PTSD. Expand
Functional connectivity of dissociative responses in posttraumatic stress disorder: A functional magnetic resonance imaging investigation
TLDR
Greater activation of neural networks involved in representing bodily states was seen in dissociated PTSD subjects than in non-PTSD control subjects, which might illuminate the mechanisms underlying distorted body perceptions often observed clinically during dissociative episodes. Expand
A Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study of Deliberate Emotion Regulation in Resilience and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
TLDR
Successful downregulation of emotional responses to negative stimuli appears to be impaired by trauma exposure, while the ability to upregulate emotional responsesto negative stimuli may be a protective factor in the face of trauma exposure and associated with resilience. Expand
Functional connectivity of the prefrontal cortex and the amygdala in posttraumatic stress disorder
TLDR
Functional connectivity in patients with PTSD and healthy trauma survivors during repeated symptom provocation using H(2)O(15) positron emission tomography is examined to suggest that inferences of direct correspondence between animal studies and pathophysiology of PTSD should be made with caution. Expand
Neural correlates of reexperiencing, avoidance, and dissociation in PTSD: symptom dimensions and emotion dysregulation in responses to script-driven trauma imagery.
TLDR
FMRI analyses of relationships between severity of state posttraumatic symptoms and neural activation found that state reexperiencing severity was associated positively with right anterior insula activity and negatively with right rostral anterior cingulate cortex (rACC). Expand
Dissociative responses to conscious and non-conscious fear impact underlying brain function in post-traumatic stress disorder
TLDR
Findings confirm the hypotheses of enhanced prefrontal activity to conscious fear and enhanced activity in limbic networks to non-conscious fear in dissociative PTSD and supports the theory that dissociation is a regulatory strategy invoked to cope with extreme arousal in PTSD. Expand

TLDR
Although maternal PTSD and RF impacted mental representations, no significant relationships were found between PTSD, RF, and overall atypical caregiving behavior. Expand
Autonomic functioning in mothers with interpersonal violence-related posttraumatic stress disorder in response to separation-reunion.
TLDR
Results support that mother-controls showed a pattern of autonomic regulation suggestive of hypervigilance during initial separation that resolved by the time of re-exposure, and PTSD-mothers showed delayed onset of this pattern only upon re-Exposure. Expand
