PTSD: Identifying Risk and Current and Future Interventions
Each month The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation hosts a Meet the Scientist Webinar featuring a researcher discussing the latest findings related to mental illness. In September, 2021, the Foundation featured Dr. Victoria B. Risbrough of the University of California San Diego.
Description: Although most of us will be exposed to at least one traumatic event in our lifetime, only a small fraction of us will go on to develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Dr. Risbrough will discuss the current understanding of potential mechanisms underlying risk factors for development of PTSD after trauma and the current strategies for developing and testing novel treatments.
