Neural Costs of War

PSYC 329
Spring 2013
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: NS&B 329
Certificates: Civic Engagement

This course focuses on psychopathology commonly classified as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of exposure to war, combat, and related atrocities. In this class, students learn about the diagnosis of PTSD, including the development and history of the diagnosis. Strong neural and cognitive mechanisms are related to stress-related psychopathology, and the overlap of these systems with the damaging effects of traumatic brain injury are covered. While the impact of these mechanisms on the social, interpersonal, and occupational is considered, this is not the focus of the course. To be fully prepared for this course, students should have a solid grounding in neuroscience and behavior basic psychopathology.
