PTSD Linked To Hippocampus Size

Published on 07/18/19 / In News & Politics

A new study has revealed the size of a person's hippocampus may indicate their susceptibility to post-traumatic stress disorder.
Columbia University researchers have found patients with smaller hippocampi have a higher tendency toward the disorder, and are less likely to respond to certain treatments, such as exposure therapy.
Meanwhile, one with a larger hippocampus will reflect lower levels of intensity from the disease.
This discovery could mean screening processes to assist those at higher risk, prior to their exposure to PTSD- inducing situations.
