This chapter covers what is known about the development of normal and pathological dissociation. Although there are many theories and speculations about the developmental basis of dissociation, relatively little is known about it beyond the role of childhood trauma (see Chapter Four). Therefore, in addition to presenting the existing research data on the role of such factors as age, gender, genetics, culture, education/intelligence, and family environment, I discuss the DBS model's implications and predictions concerning these factors.
This study investigated the relationship between self-reported childhood abuse and dissociative symptoms and amnesia. The presence or absence of corroboration of recovered memories of childhood abuse was also studied.

Recent studies have shown that victims of childhood abuse and combat veterans actually experience physical changes to the hippocampus, a part of the brain involved in learning and memory, as well as in the handling of stress. The hippocampus also works closely with the medial prefrontal cortex, an area of the brain that regulates our emotional response to fear and stress. PTSD sufferers often have impairments in one or both of these brain regions.
