Abstract

This symposium examines the neurobiology of memory and dissociation in traumatized individuals. Several paradigms are presented that investigate the specific nature of differences in "remembering" in relation to neuroendocrine profiles among those with and without posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These lines of research may help to clarify the paradox of distortion or absence of some memories and enhancement of others in PTSD.
