Description: Understanding the Overactive Brain: • Chronic Stress: how cortisol, an adrenal hormone, endangers short-term memory, increases anxiety, perpetuates PTSD, sustains depression, produces eating disorders, and undermines sleep. • Calming the Stress Response: increasing predictability and control over stressful thoughts enables the prefrontal cortex to calm the limbic system and retrain the habit brain, the basal ganglia. • Fear-Based Memories: the amygdala, fear, and insomnia. • Medical and Dental Phobias: systematic desensitization and drugs that inhibit emotional memories, e.g., beta blockers. • PTSD: traumatic memories including medical treatment produces arousal, and flashbacks, impairs sleep and causes people to avoid PTSD-related situations • Intrusive Memories and Flashbacks: hippocampus and replay of traumatic memories; drugs that block unwanted memories. • Realistic Worry and Generalized Anxiety Disorder: activation of the dorsal prefrontal cortex; GABA receptors the limbic system and habit brain; anxiolytics versus SRIs and related drugs. • Depression-Related Thoughts: rumination and cognitions that one’s problems are personal, pervasive and permanent; lowered mood, anhedonia, poor concentration, and impaired sleep. • Depressed Brain: low serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine impair prefrontal planning, motivation, and emotion regulation. • OCD Spectrum Disorders: recurrent thoughts and behaviors of one’s body or surroundings, the social brain and the habit brain. • Perfectionism: obsession “I must strive to meet unrealistically high standards and am self-critical when I fail to do so.” • Thoughts That Keep Us Awake: memories and temporal and parietal cortices; present-centered thoughts and the limbic system; future-centered thoughts and the prefrontal cortex. • The Dark Side of Food Addictions: carbohydrate-rich foods and serotonin; fatty foods and dopamine; sweets and opioid peptides. • Cravings: addictions for comfort foods, caffeine, alcohol, and prescription and illicit drugs alter the circuits of the habit brain; in anticipation, binging, and withdrawal and negative emotions. Brain-Based Therapies for Calming an Overactive Brain: • Fear Conditioning and Extinction: applying exposure-based therapies, e.g., systematic desensitization, flooding, virtual reality and EMDR; psychological therapies versus antidepressants. • Taming the Beast Within: slow thinking engages the wisdom and thoughtful delay of the prefrontal cortex to deal with anger and disorders of impulse control. • Treating Thought Distortions with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: how anxiety, anger or sadness are resolved by reinterpreting old problems (reframing), arguing against strongly held beliefs (disputation) and testing assumptions. • Mental Approaches to Improving Sleep: mental exercises that quiet prefrontal areas associated with recurrent emotions, unresolved social issues, planning and pain. • Reducing Cravings: willpower is usually not enough but new habits can reduce immediate gratification and cravings, retrain addiction circuits and help make healthy behavior automatic. • Complementary Medicines and Pharmacotherapy: why many health professionals use complementary medicines to treat anxiety, stress or depression with valerian, kava, SAMe and St. John’s Wort; comparison with anxiolytics and antidepressants. • The Joyful Brain: the neurobiology of happiness: understanding positive emotions that facilitate stress resilience, healthy forms of mood regulation, calm states of awareness, optimism and humor. • Acceptance and Commitment: learning to accept in others flaws that are unlikely to change and moving on; overcoming the pathology of perfection by accepting our own limitations. • Mindfulness: the calming effects of attending to the present and witnessing thoughts without judging them; using mindfulness to reduce pain, distress and stress.
