Borderline Personality Disorder (Berdahl, 2010)

This research developed a neural network simulation constrained by known neuroanatomy and neurophysiology to generate ideas about the etiology of Borderline Personality Disorder. The simulations suggest an important role for the amygdala-ventromedial prefrontal cortex-amygdala circuit.

Region(s) or Organism(s): Amygdala; Prefrontal cortex (PFC); Brainstem

Model Concept(s): Long-term Synaptic Plasticity; Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

Simulation Environment: C or C++ program

Implementer(s): Berdahl, Carl H [Carl.Berdahl at]
