Subsequently, cases of patients are given in whom environmentally-induced stress and trauma situations provoked enduring amnesic conditions in the autobiographic area. It is shown that for many of the patients activity changes can be demonstrated on the brain level, which are evoked by stress and trauma events. Consequently, after the field of neurologically caused, also psychiatrically caused disturbances become available for functional brain imaging.
