Basic Cognitive Neuroscience of Memory and Self-Appraisals in PTSD
Annual rept. 15 Jan 2014-14 Jan 2015
NEW YORK UNIV NY
Pagination or Media Count:
This proposal seeks to employ theories and paradigms from cognitive neuroscience to identify cognitive and neurobiological mechanisms underlying the relation between changes in self-efficacy a core feature of self-identity and combat-related PTSD. The discovery of such mechanisms will offer a novel means for conceptualizing PTSD, and will ultimately provide information that drives future research and therapeutic innovations informed directly by basic science, which in turn, may help to mitigate negative outcomes associated with PTSD.
