This groundbreaking volume is the most thorough and up-to-date exploration of the laboratory, clinical, and theoretical aspects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and related stress disorders ever published. The book reviews the entire spectrum of stress responses--from normal to pathological reactions--and brings together the very latest results from basic and clinical research. It provides for the first time critical, authoritative information that will help in the diagnosis and treatment of PTSD. This comprehensive volume provides an invaluable historical and conceptual framework by which to understand post-traumatic stress disorder, emphasizing throughout the homology between the normal stress response and the pathophysiology of PTSD. The book is divided into four major sections that logically progress from basic neurobiological research on stress to neurobiological models of stress and PTSD to specific research on PTSD and clinical issues regarding diagnosis and treatment
