Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the Brain #3 of 3, #3171

Post Traumatic Stress is not just psychological. This three part series discusses particulars about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that have been known for some time: memory difficulties, flashbacks, sleep problems, eating problems, hypersensitivity and so on. Therapists have known that trauma in a person's past psychologically affects a person's present functioning. Recently, discoveries in Affective Neuroscience shown by neuro-imaging, brain blood flow, skin response, and a host of other tests, give striking credence to what is seen expressed in therapy through the suffering person's experience.
