Brain Biomarkers, Structural Differences May Predict Severity of PTSD

Jan 30 2019
A new study examining the brain structure and activity of combat veterans with PTSD may help explain why some people experience symptoms of PTSD much more severely than others. Certain areas of the brain involved in learning and emotional response, most noticeably the amygdala, were meaningfully different in veterans with more severe symptoms.
