After experiencing trauma, some people go on to develop PTSD while others do not. Resilience and response to treatment also differ depending on the individual. To date, little research has been done to narrow down the reasons for these differences. Therefore, the main goal of this proposed 3-year longitudinal study of PTSD is to better understand the temporal relationship between the development of PTSD and structural changes in the hippocampus. Since PTSD is a costly disorder and disproportionately affects those serving in the military, this study may help determine better prevention tactics and treatment plans for those entering the military in active combat as well as the general population.
