Excerpt from Men as Victims by Mark Kastleman

Dr. Gary Lynch, a neuro-scientist at the University of California at Irvine, in discussing how the human brain processes information received from the outside world, said: "What we are saying here is that an event which lasts half a second, within five to ten minutes has produced a structural change that is in some ways as profound as the structural changes one sees in [brain] damage."

Further commenting on how a word or image can immediately alter the brain structure, Dr. Lynch says, ". . . in a matter of seconds, taking an incredibly modest signal, a word. . . which is in your head as an electrical signal for no more than a few seconds, can. . . leave a trace that will last for years."
