Mirror Neuron Theory of Autism - Part 1
In describing the conceptual basis of a stress intervention method, Emotional Brain Training (EBT), a program which integrates advances in neuroscience and stress physiology, we propose a new paradigm for health care. Many health care treatments focus on managing symptoms of stress-related disorders. In modern society stress is primarily psychological in nature and in its chronic form, the result of (non-homeostatic) neural circuits that amplify and prolong stress. The result is cognitive, emotional, behavioral and physiologic dysregulation resulting in wear and tear (allostatic load). The effectiveness of treating any one stress symptom is likely decreased because of the persistent allostatic state. Emerging understanding of neuroplasticity suggests that this circuitry is capable of change. EBT is based on the repeated use of techniques that mirror secure attachment and optimal self-regulatory processing to alter allostatic circuits through the process of reconsolidation, therefore decreasing allostatic load. This results in an improved state of well-being. We hypothesize that decreased dominance of allostatic neuronal circuits leads to improved health outcomes, offering a new paradigm for health care.
Concept 4: We can change our wiring
Recent studies of neuroplasticity demonstrate presence/persistence of a high degree of plasticity in adult brain circuitry (44, 45) regulating motor behavior and cognition as well as emotions (46). EBT is based on positive emotional plasticity; repeated use of tools that mirror the evolutionarily-based secure attachment between parent and child, (which is critical to the survival of the species) (47–49). Adults can create their own secure attachment to return themselves to a state of well-being. Changing the allostatic state occurs in two steps: 1) activation (and identification) of the maladaptive circuit and 2) alteration of the circuit through intervention during the reconsolidation window (46, 50).
