What childhood trauma does to brain

Traumatic stress impacts the developing brains of males and females differently, according to a new study from the Stanford University School of Medicine and the Early Life Stress and Pediatric Anxiety Program.

In youth with symptoms of post-traumatic stress, there is variation in the volume and surface area of the insula between males and females who have experienced traumatic stress versus those who have not, the study found. The insula is a region buried deep within the cerebral cortex that plays a key role in interoceptive processing (how much or how little attention one pays to sensory information within the body), emotion regulation, and self-awareness. The study was published online in the journal Depression and Anxiety on January 9. It is the first study to date which has examined sex differences in subdivisions of the insula in youth with trauma histories.

While many individuals experience trauma, curiously, not all of them develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). People who are diagnosed with PTSD or have had a traumatic stressor in their lives endure exposure to actual or threatened death and “intrusive” thoughts afterward, which are associated with the traumatic event. These intrusive symptoms are coined such because they are unwanted and unwelcome by the individual who experiences them, and can include repeated, involuntary distressing memories, dreams, flashbacks, and intense, prolonged psychological and physiological reactions, as if the traumatic event were still occurring (even though it has long ceased). In turn, the individual exposed to trauma who is prone to developing PTSD will avoid any stimuli associated with the traumatic event and will experience changes in thought and mood, as well as consistently heightened arousal (APA, 2013). Previous neuroscience research has found that changes in the insula following trauma contribute not only to the development of PTSD, but also to its maintenance. Similarly, it was found that women who experience trauma are more likely to develop PTSD (Hanson et al., 2008), but scientists have not been able to pinpoint why… until now.

59 youth between the ages of 9 and 17 participated in the study. Half of the individuals exhibited PTSD symptoms and half did not. The two trauma versus no-trauma groups had similar age, IQ, and sex characteristics. Of the 30 participants (14 female and 16 male) with trauma, 5 reported one traumatic stressor, while the remainder (n=25) reported more than two traumatic stressors or chronic trauma exposure. Using structural magnetic resonance imaging (sMRI), researchers scanned the participants’ brains and compared healthy male and female brains to the brains of males and females with PTSD symptoms. Though there were no structural differences in insula subdivisions between healthy male and female brains, there were notable differences between males and females in the traumatized group. Boys with trauma had larger insula volume and surface area than boys in the control group, while girls with trauma had smaller insula volume and surface area than girls in the control group. This finding suggests that trauma not only impacts the developing brain, but also that it impacts the development of boys and girls quite differently.

Insula volume decreases with aging (Shaw et al., 2008), and the reduced insula volumes in girls with PTSD symptoms suggests that this part of the brain is prematurely aging in part due to traumatic stress. Klabunde, Weems, Raman, & Carrion (2017) drove home the importance of these findings in their paper:

“By better understanding sex differences in a region of the brain involved in emotion processing, clinicians and scientists may be able to develop sex-specific trauma and emotion dysregulation treatments.”

The study also helps highlight the interplay between nature and nurture when it comes to assessing complex mental health issues, such as PTSD. While most people do not readily have access to equipment such as an MRI scanner used to elucidate this study’s findings, mental health professionals and patients alike do have the ability to remember that environmental stress translates to neurobiological changes and that these changes differ between the sexes, meaning a one-size-fits-all approach to PTSD will be much less effective than a treatment which considers contextual variables of the individual, such as biological sex.

Buku: The Orange Girl: Sebuah Dongeng Tentang Kehidupan (Jostein Gaarder)

Bandung, 6 Juni 2017

08:15pm

Hi readers, apa kabar semua?

Kali ini saya mau review satu buku lagi dari Jostein Gaarder yang berjudul The Orange Girl atau Gadis Orange. Novel filsafat ini cukup menarik karena membahas teleskop ruang angkasa Hubble dan tentu saja tentang kisah sang ayah bersama si Gadis Jeruk. Sub Judul buku ini adalah “Sebuah Dongeng Tentang Kehidupan”. Setelah saya baca buku ini sampai selesai, rasanya saya masih belum puas dan belum mudeng dengan ceritanya. Jadi saya baca ulang lagi buku ini. hehhehehe

Dalam buku ini diceritakan seorang anak bernama Georg Roed yang berasal dari Humleveien, Oslo; yang berusia 15 tahun tiba-tiba menemukan surat dari almarhum ayahnya yang sudah meninggal sejak 11 tahun sebelumnya (saat usia Georg 4 tahun). Menjelang ajalnya sang Ayah telah menulis surat untuk Georg di masa depan. Tidak ada satupun anggota keluarga yang tahu bahwa sang ayah menyimpan surat itu di kereta dorong Georg sekian lama. Sampai akhirnya Georg menemukannya saat usianya 15 tahun.

Dalam review ini saya tidak akan membahas banyak tentang si Gadis Jeruk, jika kalian penasaran silahkan langsung beli bukunya saja yah. Saya hanya akan sedikit menyinggung sedikit tentang si Gadis Jeruk.

Kisah Gadis Jeruk dimulai ketika ayah Georg berdiri diluar Teater Nasional di akhir musim gugur tahun 1970-an. Lalu ayah Georg melihat seorang gadis cantik berdiri di lorong sambil merangkul erat sebuah kantong kertas besar penuh dengan jeruk. Gadis itu mengenakan mantel kulit tua panjang berwarna orange. Nah… biarlah kisah Gadis Jeruk ini jadi misteri untuk kalian yang belum baca yah. Karena kalau saya ceritakan semua kok terkesan membocorkan rahasia buku ini. Etisnya beli dulu bukunya, bacalah, dan temukan yah. hehehehehhe

Saya akan bahas tulisan-tulisan ayah Georg tentang Teleskop Ruang Angkasa Hubble saja yah. Dalam buku ini, Jostein Gaarder seakan memuji-muji Teleskop Hubble, entah apakah ini bagian dari sponsor, politik, atau mungkin konspirasi tentang eksistensi alam semesta. Saya kurang tahu pasti, namun yang jelas kalau memang Teleskop Ruang Angkasa Hubble ini benar-benar dapat menangkap ribuan gambar di ruang angkasa, berarti saya harus yakin bahwa bentuk bumi itu bulat yah (bukan datar). Well, walau tidak bisa juga saya menyimpulkan dengan sangat sederhana semacam itu, tapi sekiranya novel ini seperti mengarahkan kita pada perspektif tersebut. ^_^

Teleskop Ruang Angkasa Hubble telah diluncurkan  ke orbitnya seputar bumi dari pesawat ruang angkasa Discovery pada 25 April 1990 dari Cape Canaveral. Para ahli menemukan bahwa ada masalah optik yang serius dengan cermin utama teleskop itu, namun kerusakan ini telah diperbaiki oleh para astronaut dari pesawat ruang angkasa Endeavour pada Desember 1993.

Gambar-gambar alam semesta yang diambil dari Teleskop Ruang Angkasa Hubble adalah yang terjelas yang pernah diambil. Ada gambar bintang raksasa Eta Carinae yang sebening kristal, yang jaraknya lebih dari 8.000 tahun cahaya dari sistem tata surya. Eta Carinae adalah salah satu bintang yang paling masif di Bima Sakti dan akan segera meledak menjadi sebuah supernova sebelum sebelum akhirnya mengerut dan membentuk bintang neutron atau sebuah lubang hitam. Ada juga gambar kabut gas dan debu raksasa di Nebula Eagle (M16). Teleskop ini telah mengambil ribuan foto galaksi dan nebula berjarak beberapa juta tahun cahaya dari Bima Sakti.

Cahaya bergerak dengan kecepatan 300.000 km/detik. Cahaya dari galaksi-galaksi yang jauh butuh waktu miliaran tahun untuk dapat nampak dari tata surya. Teleskop Ruang Angkasa Hubble telah mengambil gambar-gambar galaksi yang jauhnya lebih dari dua miliar tahun cahaya.

Dalam novel ini ada tulisan yang menurut saya agak lucu, yaitu waktu Georg mengomentari teman-teman perempuannya yang sibuk dengan eyeliner dan lipstick, dan teman-teman lelakinya yang sibuk dengan sepak bola:

“Kenyataannya kita hidup di sebuah planet di ruang angkasa. Bagiku itu adalah pemikiran yang luar biasa. Sekedar memikirkan keberadaan ruang angkasa saja sudah membuat pikiran takjub. Tapi ada anak-anak perempuan yang tidak bisa melihat alam semesta lantaran eyeliner. Dan ada anak-anak lelaki yang matanya tidak pernah melebihi cakrawala lantaran sepak bola.”

Sontak saya tertawa membaca tulisan diatas, entah karena itu lucu, entah karena mungkin saya merasa bahwa saya adalah salah satu wanita yang juga sibuk dengan eyeliner dan lipstick. hahahhaa Namun perkataan Georg ada benarnya juga. Manusia dibuat sibuk dengan apa yang ada di daratan bumi, dalam arti sibuk dengan penampilannya, sibuk dengan kehidupan sosialnya dan sebagainya; sehingga jarang sekali ada manusia yang berpikir tentang alam semesta, atau jarang sekali ada manusia yang takjub melihat, memikirkan, ataupun mempelajari alam semesta. Padahal kita hidup di suatu sistem Bima Sakti, di mana kita tinggal di salah satu planet yang ada di ruang angkasa bernama Bumi. ^_^

Dalam buku ini ditulis arti kata teleskop adalah “melihat sesuatu yang jauh”. Tujuan menempatkan sebuah teleskop di ruang angkasa jelaslah bukan untuk mendekati bintang-bintang atau planet-planet yang akan diteliti oleh teleskop itu. Ide yang melatarbelakangi pembuatan sebuah teleskop ruang angkasa adalah untuk mempelajari ruang angkasa dari sebuah titik di luar atmosfer bumi.

Teleskop Ruang Angkasa Hubble membutuhkan waktu 97 menit untuk mengorbit bumi pada kecepatan 28.000 km/jam. Teleskop Ruang Angkasa Hubble mempunyai dua sayap yang terbuat dari panel-panel surya. Panjangnya 12 m dan lebarnya 2.5 m. Panel ini menyediakan tenaga sebesar 3.000 watt untuk satelit itu.

Teleskop Ruang Angkasa Hubble diberi nama oleh seorang astronom Edwin Powell Hubble. Dialah yang membuktikan bahwa semesta itu mengembang. Pertama dia menemukan bahwa Halo Andromeda sebenarnya bukan sekedar sekumpulan partikel debu dan gas di dalam galaksi kita, melainkan merupakan sebuah galaksi yang sama sekali terpisah di luar Bima Sakti. Penemuan bahwa Bima Sakti hanya merupakan salah satu dari banyak galaksi merevolusi pandangan para astronom alam semesta.

Penemuan Hubble yang terpenting dilontarkan pada 1929 ketika dia mampu memperlihatkan bahwa semakin jauh sebuah galaksi dari Bima Sakti, laju pergerakannya akan tampak semakin cepat. Penemuan ini merupakan landasan dari Teori Dentuman Besar. Menurut teori ini, yang diterima oleh hampir seluruh astronom, alam semesta tercipta oleh sebuah ledakan besar sekitar 12-14 miliar tahun yang lalu.

Menurut Georg, ayahnya sangat mengerti tentang Teleskop Ruang Angkasa Hubble, betapa teleskop tersebut sangat penting bagi umat manusia. Setelah berusia hampir 15 miliar tahun, barulah alam semesta mendapatkan alat yang begitu fundamental seperti mata untuk melihat dirinya sendiri, yaitu Teleskop Ruang Angkasa Hubble yang disebut juga Mata Semesta.

Oh iya, sekali lagi saya masih belum paham kenapa Jostein Gaarder mengangkat tentang teleskop Hubble. Apakah ada kaitannya dengan konspirasi alam semesta antara Globe Earth vs Flat Earth? Saya belum berani berasumsi banyak soal ini. Dan saya pun masih belum mengerti apa kaitannya kisah si Gadis Jeruk dalam novel ini dengan teleskop Hubble? Well, sepertinya akan lebih seru kalau kalian juga baca bukunya dan bisa saling share disini yah. ^_^

Dalam buku ini, Jostein Gaarder menyebutkan lagu Moonlight Sonata dan Unforgettable. Diceritakan ayah Georg seringkali memainkan lagu Moonlight Sonata (Beethouven) dengan pianonya dengan harapan kiranya permainannya dapat terdengar hingga ke seluruh galaksi ruang angkasa.

Sementara lagu Unforgettable disebut dalam buku ini untuk memberikan pengantar bahwa kisah dalam buku ini tentang seorang ayah yang menjelang ajalnya menulis surat untuk Georg di masa depan, sehingga pada saat Georg menerima surat tersebut seakan dia menerimanya dari almarhum sang ayah. Lagu Unforgettable adalah lagu yang dinyanyikan oleh Nat King Cole yang sudah meninggal dunia dan direkam ulang oleh Natalie Cole (anak perempuan Nat King Cole), di mana Natalie akhirnya dapat bernyanyi duet dengan almarhum ayahnya melalui lagu ini.

Well readers, kiranya dua lagu indah tersebut dapat menambah mood kalian jadi lebih baik yah setelah membaca ini. Cerita tentang alam semesta adalah topik yang selalu menarik dan selalu membuat kita penasaran tentang hal-hal yang sulit dilihat dan dijangkau oleh manusia di Bumi. Mari kita berhenti sejenak dari rutinitas kita dan sempatkan diri untuk memandang ke langit dan takjub akan indahnya alam semesta ini.

Thank you for reading…

Narcissist


The DSMIV cites as an “essential feature” of the narcissist a “lack of empathy that begins by early childhood and is present in a variety of contexts.” If lack of empathy isn’t a hallmark of an antisocial individual, then what is? – Stanton E. Samenow, Ph.D.
For the layperson (including this writer), the word “narcissist” is often used without proper context. Associated with self-absorption and selfishness, the textbook definition of narcissism is used in a way that can apply to pretty much everyone with a pulse. However, some people are much more inclined to narcissistic behavior than others.
Perhaps there is no other way this misconception can be illustrated better than a narcissists’ relationship with others. This relationship – a word used in the loosest way possible – commonly involves deceitfulness, lack of empathy, and deliberate exploitation. These relationships are usually harmful to the person placing well-intentioned, but misguided, trust into a person lacking the ability to reciprocate such an emotional investment.
As decent people, it is beneficial that we’re able to identify and understand the traits of narcissists. None of us want to be exposed and abused, especially from a person whose preconceived actions and behaviors are designed to provoke the same.
It is our right to be loving and courteous, not doubtful and hesitant. We have the utmost right to protect ourselves from those who wish to harm us, whether such harm is intentional or not.
With this in mind, we believe it is beneficial to present certain scenarios that one may encounter with a potential narcissist. One of the things for which narcissists are well-known is taking advantage of people; hence, the purpose of this article.
HERE ARE FIVE WAYS THAT A NARCISSIST MAY TRY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU:

1. COGNITIVE DISSONANCE

It is common for a narcissist to mask his/her true identity with a false self. Basically, this is designed to be a sort-of presentation to the world – a well-designed impetus to acquire much-needed attention and admiration. Never mind that such attention and admiration is undeserved; in fact, it’s quite likely the opposite.
Unfortunately, this deceptive tactic often works. People are frequently unable to fully understand the true nature of a narcissist – as a person that lacks empathy and interest in other human beings. Instead, they see someone that is charming, sweet and caring.
As a result, victims of narcissists are likely to suffer a good deal of cognitive dissonance. They often try and rationalize the “charming, sweet and caring” person with the outlandish and hurtful behaviors that the narcissist constantly subjects them to. The end result is that victims may end of blaming themselves while overlooking the narcissist’s true identity.
2. EMOTIONAL PUPPETEERING

Also known as triangulation, narcissists often manipulate emotions via the insertion of another person into the relationship. In essence, this alters the relationship dynamic, and is an attempt to both provoke jealousy and maintain control.
Triangulation generally works as follows: another problem arises in the relationship, and the narcissist doesn’t feel obligated to help solve anything. Seeing an opportunity, the narcissist will (often) manipulate the emotions of another in order for them to communicate with the “problem person” – aka, the victim.
The objective? To make the victim feel as if they must “compete” for their affections. Narcissists will commonly say things like “I wish you’d be more like him/her,” “He/she would never treat me like this.” Such statements provoke feelings of insecurity and uncertainty in the victim; often leaving them wondering where exactly they fit into the narcissist’s life.
3. “SHAPE-SHIFTING”

Narcissists love to have their egos stroked, and are well known for having a “collection” of people to do just that. Even a narcissist realizes that – in order for people to “accommodate”  you – you must maintain some type of good will. To achieve this good will, a narcissist will often “shape-shift,” or embody a new persona in order to please people and get what they want. Namely, constant admiration and stroking of their ego.
Quite simply, it is not normal behavior to alter personas from one person to the next. Observing this tendency should be a telltale sign that the person is unauthentic and best, and narcissistic at worst.
4. “IT’S NOT ME, IT’S YOU”

Narcissists will do any say anything to cloud another’s judgement on their abnormal behavior. After subjecting their victim(s) to abuse – emotional and/or psychological, most likely – they’ll seek to invalidate and criticize any resistance to their actions. Common phrases include “You’re too sensitive,” “You’re too serious,” or “You’re misunderstanding me.”
Narcissists pride themselves on being emotional chameleons. When it comes to abuse, they’d like nothing more than for the victim to dwell in negativity and misguidedly blame themselves for the narcissist’s actions. The ultimate goal of a narcissist is to evoke a sense of self-doubt within their victims; as this self-doubt permits them more time to inflict their will.
5. THE IDEALIZATION-DEVALUATION-DISCARD CYCLE

Narcissism encompasses antisocial views and behaviors. This is most evident in relationships with romantic partners, of which there are often many. In nearly every case, the narcissist will put their partner through a cycle of idealization, devaluation and discarding.
Idealization involves making their partner the centerpiece of their life. During this phase, they’ll be charming, courteous and praising. They’ll flatter someone with this phase, and make their victim think they found their soulmate. In return, they’ll receive the admiration and attention that they constantly need.
Suddenly, the narcissist will begin to create feelings of “hot and cold,” where they continue the idealization phase to small extent, while criticizing their victim and often withdrawing from them. Predictably, the narcissist will manipulate the victim’s emotions in an attempt to maintain control. This period is often wrought with emotional and psychological abuse.
Finally, the narcissist believes their job to be done and subsequently pulls out of the relationship. But not before demeaning and disrespecting their victim in some terrible way; often by leaving them for someone else, humiliating them in front of others, or simply ignoring them for days on end.

Don’t destroy me, Love


A Happy re​lationship can transform into a destructive one if you treat her less than how she deserves to be treated.
Nonetheless, I hope you try to love her right. I hope you cast every ray of awareness upon your love for her. I hope you know that awareness is what keeps a relationship strong.
I want you to remember how she looked when you first laid eyes on her. She was everything you longed for. Be it her beauty, her wild nature, her sense of humor or her independence, there’s something about her you haven’t found in anyone else.
And what floored you the most was her completeness.
If you love her, keep her this way. Keep her beautiful, keep her wild, keep her complete.
While she’s the master of her own fate, I wish you understood that you play a major role in her life. How you treat her determines how she views herself—you can make her shine or make her feel lost. She’s a statue in your hands and she only hopes to be held with vigilance.
If you love her, don’t destroy her.
Know that she was destroyed before and another destruction isn’t what she’s aiming for. If she’s with you, know that she has stepped over her fear and insecurities to be with you. She has stepped over her past and decided to give love another chance. She has entrusted you with the health of this relationship—and with her heart.
Don’t let her down.
You destroy her the moment you think you know her. She’s not a book you will eventually finish. She’s something yet to be discovered—so live every day as if you’re meeting her for the first time.
Be present. Nothing destroys her more than your emotional absence. You can sit with her all day long and not really be there, yet you can be so far away and be completely present.
Stimulate her thoughts, her emotions, her being. Dive into her soul like you’d dive into an ocean.
Know that you’ll wreck her if she ever felt you need her rather than want her. You’ll destroy every inch of her if you only love her when loneliness creeps up on you. Because she seeks your love in all moments, not just when your fears and insecurities strike.
I know that your own past sufferings may have destroyed you. But don’t love her just so she can carry your emotional baggage with you. Don’t love her if you only want her to fix you. Know that she will, with time, without you even knowing.
Her love and existence will heal every part of you. But if you are with her solely to fill the emptiness inside you, she will know—and it will destroy her.
And remember, she doesn’t want to be fixed either. Maybe she opened up to you and told you about her painful past. Perhaps you know the exact number of pieces she was turned into. But she didn’t tell you so you would fix her—she only told you so you can know what she endured and how it made her who she is today.
She wants you to acknowledge that your actions toward her—actions motivated by love, understanding and patience—are what matter.
Don’t treat her like a broken woman. She is complete with all her pieces, even though they may still be scattered everywhere. Embrace them with her—just don’t add to them. Make her see why she went through destructive relationships in the past. Make her realize that she went through the “worst” so she could appreciate the “better” that you are.
If you love her, love her with all her flaws and insecurities. She is as imperfect as you are and she only hopes to share that imperfection with you. She wants to undress her soul in front of you and be utterly herself.
She wants to be the same way with you that she is in the mirror—crazy, wild and free. If you’re not ready to accept her as she is, you will destroy her.
If you love her, build her up because she will be doing the same for you. Know that whatever effort you put in, she will be putting in double.
If you show her the moon, she’ll show you the entire galaxy.
If you take her to a well, she’ll introduce you to the ocean.
If you treat her right, she’ll love you more.
If you love her well, she’ll never forget you.

Lets Pretend by Prynczzwonda


Playing pretend

Imagine if we faked something so deep

it becomes real

Let’s pretend you love me half 

as much as I do you

I was catching fake feelings

And we had this fake strong connection

Would we have the perfect fake love?
Let’s pretend that our eyes were locked 

for a moment

Whilst my hands search your body purposely? 

Would you run away and hope I chase you?

Would it even matter?

Lets pretend that this was real

Would you still pretend you never felt it too?

It’s Not a Sin

Image result for it's not a sin

IT’S NOT A SIN

Sosokmu penuh pesona

Senyum manismu bermekaran di jiwa

Terkadang menyebalkan

Tetapi apalah daya

Fisikmu samar-samar

Sulit dijangkau oleh jiwa

Sulit diwujudkan oleh rasa

Tak mungkin dimimpikan

Tak mungkin digapai

Hingga jiwa kehilangan raga

Jika boleh ku mengungkapkan

Perasaan ini adalah yang terdahsyat yang pernah ada

Apa cinta ini dapat terwujud?

Jawabannya selalu “tidak”

Mencintaimu adalah ilusi

Bersamamu adalah khayalan

Namun kupastikan, jiwaku ada disana

Imajinasiku jadi nyata

Sin won’t be sin

When you see the beauty in it

SEPASANG LAYANGAN

SEPASANG LAYANGAN

Timbangan nyata penuh makna dan tanda tanya

Keseimbangan terkadang hanya melalui kata-kata

Tuhan… apakah ini hanya euforia-Mu semata?

Sehingga ada rasa dari semua alam semesta.

Desir angin pantai malaikat pun tak kunjung datang

Hingga sampai dirimu datang

Hasratku menyentuh langit terbentang

Jangan biarkan musuh menghadang

Sekalipun kau yakin tak pernah menang

Bergeraklah melawan!

Sampai Tuhan melihat hati berlinang.
