With seperation anxiety it could be anxiety for being away from you parents, sleeping at places without your parents ect. I had seperation anxiety as a child and there are some research pointing towards the risk of developing panic anxiety is 3.times higher if one had separation anxiety as a child. Panic anxiety has been seen as a component in development depersonalization.

hey mg. this tms setup seems to be from magstim. is this a good one to stimulate the right areals? they have neuronavigation also and they would be ready to read into the dpd studies. i would like to try the VLPFC because that seems to be that one for emotions and sense of self.

Regarding rTMS at the right VLPFC a normal coil as seen on the picture can likely stimulate 30% of the right VLPFC. The right VLPFC expands into the brain and is covered by other structures. So, many parts of it can not be stimulated. You need a coil for deep stimulation and Magventure is the only provider who currently makes one that it used in research and some few private clinics. The right VLPFC might not be the correct location. The anterior cingulate and the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex is more likely a candidate. In theory but location could play a role. But deep coil is need for the location.

The small trail done at the VLPFC can be replicated with the equipment as can the angular gyrus trail.
is the anterior cingulate and the dorsomedial prefontral cortex stimulated by the ocd coil from brainsway for deep tms?

and how to explain the point from people who responded to the stimulation of the right vlpfc? they used also not a deep coil right?

are there anecdotes where people with dpd responded to the stimulation of anterior cingulate and dorsomedial prefrontal?
to mg

this seems to be from magventure. how much of the right vlpfc can this stimulate?
