Hello,

I am looking for information related to the Polyvagal Theory of Dr. Stephen Porges. My interest is in healing deep trauma with a combination of approaches, some of them quite ancient. I left some questions on Dr. Porges's site, but who knows if I will get a response? My questions are about the ontogeny and phylogeny of the autonomic nervous system, with special attention to the two branches of the vagus nerve and their relation to the so-called 'fight or flight' response. Ideally, my hope is that someone on this forum is knowledgeable about this area.

I am not sure if this would be the best section of this forum or even the best forum. Suggestions and redirects would be welcome. Reading suggestions and websites too. As Wikipedia says: "Porges is a neuroscientist with particular interests in understanding the neurobiology of social behavior. His research crosses disciplines and he has published in anesthesiology, critical care medicine, ergonomics, exercise physiology, gerontology, neurology, obstetrics, pediatrics, psychiatry, psychology, space medicine, and substance abuse." His work is hard to label neatly.

Thank you all for any assistance.

This is the first time I have heard of Polyvagal Theory. Sounds cool. Maybe you could post some of what you have found here so we can get our own discussion going?

Using Google you will find a lot of info on Stephen Porges and Polyvagal theory. His research is definitely important, and worth studying and discussing, but for my part I will have to upgrade my knowledge of the vagus and trigeminal nerves before I study his work in detail.
By the way, this is the most important piece of info I have found on this forum so far. Thanks, both to the forum and the poster.
