The Neurobiology of Personality I: The 4-Level-Model (EN)
Von Dr. Dr. Damir del Monte (2)
Personality refers to all individual characteristics in the regularly recurring expression of a person's behaviour and experience. But how does this personality develop? Does it represent a predisposition or rather an acquired ability? Research clearly says: both are true. From genetics, to epigenetic modulation, which is shaped not least by prenatal and early postnatal development, it is learning and environmental experience that ensure that people develop an increasingly stable personality structure over the course of their lives. In this video series, Damir del Monte explores the question of how a person's personality becomes anchored in their brain. Based on the assumption that a person's psyche and personality develop in inseparable unity with their brain, he traces this development and looks at the phenomenon of personality from a neurobiological perspective. The lecture "Neurobiology 1" takes you through the four-level model developed by Roth, Cierpka & Strüber and presented here in a very special way. In the soon to follow chapter "Neurobiology 2", the six basic psychoneuronal systems (stress processing system, attachment system, self-soothing system, evaluation and reward system, impulse inhibition system, sense of reality system and risk assessment system) are introduced and their development, which varies greatly over time, is traced. These two concepts provide a deep insight into the neurobiological foundations of human development and personality.
