Diathesis Stress Model Genetic vulnerability The more diathesis inside an individual the less stress it takes to reach threshold to feel depressed Example: Think of a cup one is half full of diathesis already because genetically passed down the other cup is only a quarter full because there is no signs genetically of diathesis. Reaching for the top of the first cup will take less water (stressors) compared to the other cup. When it does reach the top it overflows (over stressed) and becomes depressed. Reciprocal Gene Environmental Model Where an individual inherits not only the genetic vulnerability along with the character feature that will be appealed to environmental surroundings that upsurges risk for disorder. Example: Drinking may make an individual feel less depressed so they continue to drink to numb the pain away. Although, that is creating another issue of alcoholism. Whenever they see alcohol it can increase the risk higher. Interaction of Genes and Environment Brain is more “plastic” Example: Behaviors of you mother may influence you for your stress tolerance. It is shown that if your mother is calm and supportive to you if you may be fearful her actions can reduce your feelings. Hindbrain Medulla, Pons, and cerebellum are automatic activities Example: dreaming, balance, breathing, and pumping of heart Midbrain and Thalamus/ Hypothalamus Midbrain sleep wake cycle Thalamus/Hypo behavior and emotion Forebrain Limbic system forebrain base, includes memory and sensuous threat. It is responsible for emotion. Basal ganglia forebrain base, regulates motor behavior (twitch)
