FIGURE 1 AND COVER. Recent studies have begun to explore how the underlying neurobiology of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may be affected by the nature of the index trauma. The results of a meta-analysis that grouped task-activated (trauma reminders) functional MRI (fMRI) studies by PTSD index trauma are color-coded by trauma type (blue, sexual/physical abuse; pink, combat-related) (1). Of note, although areas of greater activation were predominately in the right hemisphere for both… Expand
The Role of Moral Injury in PTSD Among Law Enforcement Officers: A Brief Report
TLDR
The role of moral injury significantly predicted PTSD as well as its diagnostic clusters (i.e., avoidance, hyperarousal, re-experiencing) and its clusters were unequivocal even when compassion fatigue was incorporated into the path model. Expand
Associations between moral injury, PTSD clusters, and depression among Israeli veterans: a network approach
TLDR
The first attempt to apply a network analysis model to examine an exploratory empirical conceptualization of a network of PMIEs during military service, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptom clusters, depression, and combat exposure among Israel Defence Forces veterans is presented. Expand
Moral injury in Veterans with nonepileptic seizures
TLDR
Those with MI had more guilt and depressive symptoms than those without, and an increased understanding of this condition may aid in the development of diagnostic screenings and therapy options for those with PNES. Expand
Associations Between Difficulties in Emotion Regulation and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in Deployed Service Members of the German Armed Forces
TLDR
Difficulties in emotion regulation are directly associated with the severity of PTSD symptoms in service members of the German Armed Forces. Expand
Moral Injury: An Increasingly Recognized and Widespread Syndrome
TLDR
The history, definition, measurement, prevalence, distinctiveness, psychological consequences, manifestations, manifestations (in and outside of military settings), and correlates of MI in different settings are reviewed. Expand
Resilience: Safety in the Aftermath of Traumatic Stressor Experiences
TLDR
This work explores stressor dynamics and social processes that foster resilience in response to specific traumatic, chronic, and uncontrollable stressor contexts (intimate partner abuse; refugee migration; collective historical trauma); and points to resilience factors that may comprise neurobiological changes.

Functional Neuroanatomy of Emotion and Its Regulation in PTSD
TLDR
It is demonstrated that emotion dysregulation in PTSD arises from complications within a large neurocircuitry involving the amygdala, insula, hippocampus, anterior cingulate cortex, and prefrontal cortex, which further support the importance of studying emotion-regulation deficits in tandem with exaggerated symptom provocation in order to better understand the constellation of symptoms present in those with PTSD.
