Individuals differ strongly in their vulnerability to develop posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the aftermath of traumatic stress. This review on genetic risk factors in PTSD etiology employs the perspective of a psychobiological model, which proposes that intrusive memories, the core PTSD symptom, result from the formation of an associative neural fear network, which stores sensory-perceptual representations of traumatic memories. The current state of research on the genetics of PTSD, as… Expand
