Abstract

This review provides an overview of the most recent neuroimaging findings in borderline personality disorder. The contributions of the structural and functional imaging studies of the past 3 years are presented to help us better understand this severe psychiatric disorder. There are three domains of functional imaging findings: 1) affective dysregulation; 2) the complex of dissociation, self-injurious behavior, and pain processing; and 3) social interaction. Knowledge of the neurobiological basis of borderline personality disorder has grown considerably. Therefore, these findings convey a good impression of the current findings from neuroimaging research in this disorder and also of the necessary next steps with regard to content and methodology.
