On the retrosplenial cortexThe retrosplenial cortex seems a pretty fascinating area I hadn't really considered but seeing just basic info about it explains many symptoms of my individual DPD. Particularly episodic memory.. I have some form of dissociative amnesia. I just shut down when challenged, or embarrassed socially.
Dont know what this could hold, looks promising as a new idea though. Has made me consider trying Lamotrigine again. I know one person said they felt nothing for months once, then it was as if one day a lightbulb was switched on... Benzo's in small doses perhaps. Perhaps Clonazepam, although unlikely my GP will prescribe me that
- "It has [...] been suggested that retrosplenial cortex may translate between egocentric (self-centred) and allocentric (world-centred) spatial information, based upon its anatomical location between the hippocampus (where there are allocentric place cell representations) and the parietal lobe (which integrates egocentric sensory information)."
- "Its function is currently not well understood, but its location close to visual areas and also to the hippocampal spatial/memory system suggest it may have a role in mediating between perceptual and memory functions"
Sounds relevant to DPDR.
