Regional cerebral glucose metabolism differentiates danger- and non-danger-based traumas in post-traumatic stress disorder
Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, pp. 234-242, 2016.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is presumably the result of life threats and conditioned fear. However, the neurobiology of fear fails to explain the impact of traumas that do not entail threats. Neuronal function, assessed as glucose metabolism with (18)fluoro-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography, was contrasted in active duty...More
