Dr. Bryant talks about the intersection of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and PTSD, including treatment and how therapy needs to be adapted for TBI survivors.
The human brain goes through a complex process to form and consolidate memories. But is it possible to replace memories of fearful events, and in doing so, assist in the treatment of patients suffering from the debilitating effects of posttraumatic stress disorder or other anxiety disorders?
Dr. Joseph LeDoux and a team of New York University neuroscientists think they have found a way to replace traumatic memories through therapy.

The primary aim of this study is to compare the effectiveness of two lifestyle interventions for improving the outcome of prolonged exposure therapy (PE) for PTSD. Eligible participants will receive free PE for 12 weeks and participate in either a wellness or exercise program (determined by a flip of a coin).
