October 2017

October 2017 Information

Dr. Boyd Rorabaugh will discuss how posttraumatic stress disorder induces changes in the heart that make it more susceptible to injury that occurs during a heart attack. He will explore how this occurs and whether the cardiac effects of PTSD can be prevented.

Dr. Phillip Zoladz will discuss recent work from an NIH-funded project revealing that certain genetic variants influence the time-dependent relationship between stress and learning, which could help us understand why some people are more susceptible to traumatic memory formation and the development of post-traumatic stress disorder.
