I'm interested in neuropsychological disfunctions in the PTSD considering my clinical practice. I think they have to be with Frances Tustin's contributions on sensorial sensations and the autistic withdraw as a defense to prserve life throuh the diminished use of oxygen to the vital functions. I wrote some articles on Psychossomatic symptom and Nrvous Anorexia based in these studies. I would like to wnow if this book consider hese questions. Sincerely, Sebastião Salim
