This 2015 recorded session presents current information on the brain mechanisms that lie at the core of PTSD that are not yet understood and that may perpetuate or sustain this disorder. Functional neuroimaging studies have uncovered a complex network of brain regions involved in PTSD, progressively improving our understanding of its pathophysiology. The evolution of functional neuroimaging studies from early studies of responses to emotional probes to recent multiday studies of fear-associated learning, and of intrinsic connectivity networks, will be discussed, highlighting their contribution to the evolving concepts of PTSD pathophysiology.
Learning Objectives: 1. Explain the current model of PTSD neurocircuitry. 2. Describe the role of functional neuroimaging in studying brain circuits in PTSD. 3. Examine the conceptual evolution in models of PTSD pathophysiology.
