Welcome to this interview on the Biology of Trauma Summit 3.0, talking about the trauma disease connection. And in this interview you’re going to learn what is the mechanism of the trauma disease connection, what happens in the body that something that was a trauma response became a disease, a health symptom, a health condition for us. So excited with this interview and I want to explain what the autonomic nervous system is, because that’s all that we are going to be talking about in this interview. And I don’t want you to be lost in the body. And I’m going to pull up this chapter that I have for my biology of attachment module, because I want to show you this picture that I have in this chapter that I wrote. And this is the anatomy and physiology. I don’t know how many of you go through anatomy and physiology. I went to medical school, so I am very well versed in anatomy and physiology. It probably was a trauma for me. I’m joking. I’m joking. But here it is. And we often get confused about that which aspect of the nervous system we’re talking about when it comes to trauma. So we have what’s called the brain and we have a spinal cord that is the central nervous system, that is not the autonomic nervous system.
