  • Pannu Hayes, LaBar, Petty, McCarthy, and Morey’s paper entitled “Alterations in the neural circuitry for emotion and attention associated with posttraumatic symptomatology” has received recent media coverage.  Findings show that presenting emotional stimuli enhances neural activity in the ventral-limbic and dorsal regions and anterior cingulate gyrus in veterans with greater PTSD symptomatology.  In March, the Navy Times discussed these findings in its article “Study may show how PTSD changes the brain.”
