The memories associated with the traumatic event are not only full of blank spaces but also wholly distorted. Certain details will be exaggerated, and since they are associated with an emotional response, they will create an unpleasant sensation characterized by aversion and fear. It is thought that this is an adaptive response of the organism to avoid a future event of this magnitude, but this tendency of over-remembering, exaggerating scenes of graphic violence and even creating new memories become a source of serious social dysfunction and behavioral alterations.
