Another interesting relationship between anxiety and the brain is that long term anxiety may damage the brain in a way that could cause further anxiety.
Researchers have found that when you leave your anxiety disorder untreated, the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex, anterior cingulate, hippocampus, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, and orbitofrontal cortex all appear to decrease in size.
The longer the anxiety goes untreated, the smaller and weaker they appear to be.
Those with anxiety may feel their thoughts are completely natural, when in reality the brain contributes to that type of negative thinking.
