Brain Connectivity Is Lower in Adults With PTSD or a History of Sexual Abuse

Published

on

A study conducted at MUSC in adults with a history of childhood maltreatment showed that two groups—those with a history of sexual abuse and those with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)—had reduced brain connectivity in the attention systems known as the ventral and dorsal attention network (VAN-DAN). No such reduction was seen in adults with a history of physical abuse, nor in those who did not develop PTSD. The team, which was led by MUSC neuroscientist Jane Joseph, Ph.D., also showed that connectivity in the VAN-DAN systems increased after treatment with oxytocin, a hormone associated with social affiliations and the stress response. The team’s findings are published in Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging.
