PTSD is a mental health problem that can develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening or extremely upsetting event.
Symptoms of PTSD can include unwanted memories of the event, avoidance of reminders of the event, feeling jittery or on-guard, and feeling sad, numb, or hopeless.
PTSD can affect anyone. Symptoms may develop immediately after a traumatic experience, or after several weeks or months. The severity of symptoms may come and go over time.

How Magnetic Resonance Imagine (MRI) Works
We teach strategies to deal with trauma-related thoughts and memories, and you use these strategies to develop control over your brain activity.
Over the course of 5 fMRI scans, you will practice these control techniques and receive real-time feedback.
Neurofeedback allows participants to gain control over their brain's response to stress.
