New research has just been released that examines dissociation from a novel perspective. The large group of researchers claim to have found the root of all dissociation, not just in humans, but across "all species". These findings are profound:
- "The rhythmic activity of a single layer of neurons has now been shown to cause dissociation - an experience involving a feeling of disconnection from the surrounding world."
- "Vesuna and colleagues' work provides compelling evidence that a low-frequency rhythm in the deep posteromedial cortex is an evolutionarily conserved mechanism that underlies dissociation across species." [link]
