Signals to the thalamus about basic body functions like arousal, breathing, heart rate, and so forth can be disrupted by very high or low intensity brainstem stimulation (Castro-Alamancos and Calcagnotto 2001). Either “bottom-up,” affect-driven, or “top-down,” cognition-driven dysregulation can result in neuropsychiatric conditions (Llinás and Ribary 2001). Overwhelming trauma leading to PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and dissociation displays significant thalamic inactivation (Lanius et al.

Affect regulation is a functional expression of connectivity between subcortical, limbic and cortical brain activity. The circuitry of the brain integrates limbic, bottom-up expression and cortical top-down regulation of affect (Baumeister and Vohs 2004). Art therapy practices provide a unique opportunity for expression of emotions and practicing the regulation of affect. Colors and textures easily arouse affectively laden limbic memories while purposeful art-making provides a here and now opportunity to express, understand and integrate emotional reactions.
