SYNOPSIS

From Hollywood blockbusters to front-page news, the tormented veteran unable to transition from warzone to home-front is everywhere.

This focus on the military’s struggle with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) obscures a simple truth: PTSD hits more civilians than soldiers, and more women than men. And it manifests with a dizzying range of symptoms, from flashbacks and nightmares to aggression and depression.

Scientists are developing increasingly clear pictures of the brain activity that results in PTSD.

But as they search for a sure-fire treatment, they’re still trying to understand a confounding question: When so many people experience the trauma of sudden loss, near-death, or violence, why are some more vulnerable to PTSD than others?
