Emotional memory and hippocampal-amygdala dynamism in context of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Proper communication between hippocampus and amygdala is essential in the formation of emotional memory. In Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) patients, the hippocampal-amygdala dynamism is compromised leading to various psychological and physical symptoms. Current methods of PTSD treatment carry a myopic vision by focus on alleviating specific symptoms alone limiting scope of treatment. The development of effective treatment methods for PTSD patients requires a holistic understanding of the role of hippocampus-amygdala complex by expanding on the current understanding of encoding, consolidation and retrieval of emotional memory.
