Summary · Introduction · Highly recommended. AUSTIN, Texas Trauma-centered psychotherapy is widely considered to be the best available treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). However, the ways in which this method affects the brain to promote recovery from PTSD are not well understood. In a new study published today in Biological Psychiatry, researchers used neuroimaging to examine how psychotherapy modifies the areas of the brain responsible for generating emotional responses to threats.
A high-performance system for the management of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) identifies and effectively applies research findings on prevention, evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment to provide optimal care. According to research published in the Journal of Neuroscience, researchers may have found a way to improve a common treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by changing the way the brain learns to respond less severely to conditions of fear.
