“Most tasks involved passive reactivity, meaning these areas largely reflect activation patterns for passive viewing of unpleasant scenes and faces.” which means that the person experiencing the negative and unpleasant scenes do not actively respond or resist to them.

I reckon this probably develops from childhood trauma and abuse. What do you reckon?
