SEIJAS GOMEZ, Raquel. Posttraumatic stress disorder and brain. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2013, vol.33, n.119, pp.511-523. ISSN 2340-2733.

Currently, we have enough literature about brain findings in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A bibliographical review of the articles published in the last years related to neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder is presented. The aims of this review are: to describe the hypotheses that relate the neuroanatomics disorders and the typical symptomatology of the TEPT, and to describe the neuropsychological profile and the treatments based in Neuroscience, taking into account that the methodological limitations of the studies do not allow to generalize these results. Finally, we raise the rehabilitation of the neuropsychological cognitive deficits shown by these patients, with a view to enhancing the effectiveness of psychological treatments.
