Mild TBI Diagnosis and Management Strategies

Brain Amygdala Volume Changes in Veterans and Active-Duty Military Personnel With Combat-Related Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury


by Mingxiong Huang, PhD
Seminar date: 12/7/2021

Description: To identify amygdalar volumetric differences associated with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in individuals with comorbid mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) compared with those with mTBI-only and to examine the effects of intracranial volume (ICV) on amygdala volumetric measures. The comorbid mTBI/PTSD group had significantly larger amygdala volumes, when normalized to ICV, compared with the TBI-only group.

Intended audience:
Clinicians, researchers, and medical staff in the areas of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and comorbid mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI).
