After recovering from a fever in July, Orville Young, now four, was diagnosed with acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM, and spent six days in the hospital. At his worst, the Youngs say Orville was unable to move the upper part of his right arm and had difficulty moving his legs and sitting up.

A control process (i.e. selective attention) is used by avoidant grievers to block mental representations (i.e. thoughts of the deceased loved one) from entering consciousness (yellow section). When this is happening, avoidant grievers are suppressing (yellow section). This suppression likely exhausts energy and ultimately leads to the mental representations breaking through attempted control and reaching consciousness (red section). Contrasting avoidant grievers those with a less avoidant style simply focus on what is in front of them without trying to monitor their internal mental state as much (blue section).

Studies of the dopamine-producing area of the midbrain called the ventral tegmental area (center) have mostly focused on dopamine’s role in reward. However, some evidence suggests that dopamine also plays a role in learning about aversive events, though the precise nature of the neural circuitry through which dopamine signals either reward or aversion is incompletely understood. In a new UC Berkeley study, researchers recorded from the axons of midbrain dopamine neurons that project to two areas of the nucleus accumbens (top) and discovered that there are two populations of neurons in the midbrain: the well-known circuit responding to positive motivational stimuli, but a parallel circuit responding to aversive events (blue). They also found that neurons from the lateral hypothalamus (bottom) were critical to priming aversion-sensing neurons to respond to painful stimuli. Credit: University of California - Berkeley
