Baylor researchers working to treat PTSD
Researchers from Baylor, Texas A&M and the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs are working together to treat and possibly prevent post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and the collaborators recently received $2.7 million from the federal government to fund their work.
“People with PTSD begin to associate other cues in their environment with fear, and they predict bad things will happen. We’re studying what creates that increased fear response,” says Dr. Brad Keele, a 1990 Baylor grad and an associate professor of psychology and neuroscience.
