Posttraumatic stress disorder, blast TBI, and Changes to Brain Functional Connectome
Sarah Martindale, PhD

Seminar date: 3/22/2022
Description: During deployment, many service members experience blast and other events that result in traumatic brain injury (TBI) as well as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Both TBI and PTSD can affect brain function and communication. Each brain region communicates with many others, forming networks that are collectively called the “functional connectome”. This webinar will describe how blast, TBI, and PTSD affect the functional connectome in post-deployment Veterans and its implications for recovery from PTSD.
Intended Audience: Researchers and clinicians with interest in effects of PTSD, TBI, and blast on the brain.
