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]

I have just read it and read an article about the location.i think it correct. Areas around this location have been found to be larger in MRI scans and overactive in fMRI studies in depersonalisation. The location is a part of the "default mode network" or the network the brain is in when it is at rest and self reflective. The location is to deep in the brain to affect with rTMS but it like to be in several networks with locations you can affect with rTMS. The current french rTMS trail on "angular gyrus" is a central hub in the default mode network might have some affect on it in some. The medial prefrontal cortex and anterior cingulate are also overactive in depersonalization. They are also central hubs in the default mode network. So, the response from this location could likely be turned off by working with these locations in the default mode network. You need neuronavigation to find these location and a deep coil for the medial prefrontal cortex/dorsal nexus. A coil just approved for OCD in the US and likely later in Europa can work on this location also called the "dorsal nexus". It is a depression, OCD, PTSD location.

To this article is a 8.min video where stimulation at the dorso medial prefrontal cortex/dorsal Nexus is done with neuronavigation and the coil that just have been approved in the US that go stimulate deep enough.
so if i understand your theory right, if they are able to figure out exactly which areas in our brain are responsible for dpdr, and if they found a coil whats able to go that deep, then we can treat our symptoms?

it sounds too easy for me, i dont know.
