Increased Synaptic Plasticity Results in Post-Traumatic Growth not PTSD after Serious Trauma (±x)

[HYPERTHYMESIA IS NOT POSSIBLE WITHOUT PHENOMENAL INCREASES IN SYNAPTIC PLASTICITY. INCREASED SYNAPTIC PLASTICITY LEADS TO INCREASED LONG-TERM POTENTIATION (“LTP”). A CORE-FINDING IN SCHIZOPHRENIA IS ‘SIGNIFICANT COGNITIVE AND MEMORY DEFICITS’ – I OBVIOUSLY HAVE NEITHER.

What is PTG: the Science of Post-Traumatic Growth
What is post-traumatic growth, what does it refer to, is it related to wellbeing and what is the relationship between ptg and positive outcome?...
Nietzsche (1997/1889) cited in Haidt (2006, p135) stated that:
“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”.
The adversity hypothesis states that people require adversity, trauma and setbacks in order to grow, find fulfilment, develop as a person and find their inner strength. Can this be true? Reams of literature over the past 50 years has documented the negative effects that stress and trauma have on humans.
Depression, anxiety, heart disease and post-traumatic stress disorder all result from trauma and stress, however more recent literature is beginning to address the notion that stress and trauma can actually be good for people (Haidt, 2006).
What Does PTG Actually Refer to?
PTG has been researched in a hugely diverse set of traumatic events from divorce and death to natural disasters and terrorist attacks (Haidt, 2006). The literature on PTG shows that even though the causes of PTG are vast, the benefits reported fall into three categories:
- feeling stronger and finding hidden abilities and strengths; this changes the persons self concept and gives them confidence to face new challenges, e.g. If I can survive this I can survive anything;
2. good relationships are strengthened, which is reflected in how people often speak of “finding out who their true friends are”
“When I am doing well, my friends know who I am. When things are bad I know who my friends are.” – Joseph S R de Saram
after they have experienced a trauma; and,
3. priorities and philosophies concerning the present day and other people are altered, e.g. living for the moment and prioritising your loved ones (Haidt, 2006 and Joseph & Linley, 2005).

Plasticity is the ability of the brain to change and adapt to new information. Synaptic plasticity is change that occurs at synapses, the junctions between neurons that allow them to communicate.
The idea that synapses could change, and that this change depended on how active or inactive they were, was first proposed in the 1949 by Canadian psychologist Donald Hebb. Because of synaptic plasticity’s probable contribution to memory storage, it has since become one of the most intensively researched topics in all of neuroscience.

Prefrontal cortex (PFC) mediates an assortment of cognitive functions including working memory, behavioral flexibility, attention, and future planning. Unlike the hippocampus, where induction of synaptic plasticity in the network is well-documented in relation to long-term memory, cognitive functions mediated by the PFC have been thought to be independent of long-lasting neuronal adaptation of the network. Nonetheless, accumulating evidence suggests that prefrontal cortical neurons possess the cellular machinery of synaptic plasticity and exhibit lasting changes of neural activity associated with various cognitive processes. Moreover, deficits in the mechanisms of synaptic plasticity induction in the PFC might be involved in the pathophysiology of psychiatric and neurological disorders such as schizophrenia, drug addiction, mood disorders, and Alzheimer’s disease.
