THE CONNECTING ROOM

When it is a viable option, it is best for victims to do what they can to escape their abusers. However, this is not the case in all situations. Abusers repeatedly go to extremes to prevent the victim from leaving.
One study found in interviews with men who have killed their wives that either threats of separation by their partner or actual separations were most often the precipitating events that lead to the murder.
A victim's reasons for staying with their abusers are extremely complex and, in most cases, are based on the reality that their abuser will follow through with the threats they have used to keep them trapped.
These threats often include the abuser will hurt or kill them, they will hurt or kill the kids, they will win custody of the children, they will harm or kill pets or others, they will ruin their victim financially -- the list goes on.
The victim in violent relationships knows their abuser best and fully knows the extent to which they will go to make sure they have and can maintain control over the victim.
The victim literally may not be able to safely escape or protect those they love.

Discoveries about the brain include the fact that its storage capacity is virtually unlimited, that it can generate around 23 watts of power - which is enough to power a lightbulb, and that it can survive for up to six minutes without oxygen.
In a more recent discovery, National Institutes of Health researchers gained some insight into why our brains remember certain words much better than others.
The study focused on epilepsy patients and healthy volunteers and was published in Nature Human Behaviour.
The team combined memory tests, brain wave recordings, and surveys of billions of words published in books, news articles and internet encyclopaedia pages, and showed how the organ may recall words, in addition to memories of our past experiences.
Through testing the research team found that remembering certain words could be linked to your memories of them.
