Fascinating study on BPD... twinleaf

I'll take a crack at explaining this study.

The study participants were playing a "trust game". Researchers found different patterns of brain activity in people with borderline personality disorder were associated with distortions in their ability to perceive social cues. This study suggests that people with BPD have problems accurately reading social cues. Which may lead them to respond and behave in a distrustful and uncooperative ways with others.

Hence, what Twinleaf says in his post; "Although this study did not discuss any therapeutic implications, it seems clear that people who have BPD need a very interactive, interpersonal form of therapy, in which the motives and feelings of both the patient and the therapist are talked about at length." makes so much sense for me.


Thanks for sharing this fascinating study and your astute assessment. Explains so much for me! I'm going to forward the article to my T.
