MRI studies in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) have focused primarily on manual based hippocampal volumetry, which is located in the subcortical. However, the cortical reduction or increase caused especially by thickness changes has not been well investigated. Recent advances in computational analysis provide new opportunities to use fully automatic techniques to measure cortical thickness, along with a method called voxel-based morphometry that enables an exploration of structural… CONTINUE READING
