Neural and autonomic correlates of post-traumatic stress disorder during processing of trauma-related stimuli

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) emerges after the exposure to an event that elicits horror or helplessness, including threat of injury or death to one's self or another person. Community-based studies have evaluated its occurrence with a lifetime prevalence of 9.2% in the Canadian population. This research project aims to develop innovative, neural-substrate based, and novel theoretical paradigms for understanding psychological trauma and its clinical outcomes, including problems in emotion regulation, self-awareness, social emotional and self-referential processing.

Dexterity has developed an online service called Place2Give which aims to answer those questions. The research project aims to employ social network analysis and data mining to enhance the data introduced into the databases used by Place2Give from which the data for the analysis of the charitable organizations behavior is extracted on a case by case basis.
