ABSTRACTIntroduction: Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are highly prevalent comorbid conditions in military Veterans. However, lack of appropriate comparison groups has clouded interpretation of the chronic effects of these conditions. The present study evaluated the neuropsychological, psychiatric/neurobehavioral, and functional outcomes associated with mTBI and PTSD in a well-characterized sample of combat-exposed Veterans.Method: Participants include...

Objective To better concurrently address emotional and neuropsychological symptoms common in veterans with comorbid post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and history of traumatic brain injury (TBI), we integrated components of compensatory cognitive training from the Cognitive Symptom Management and Rehabilitation Therapy (CogSMART) programme into cognitive processing therapy (CPT) for PTSD to create a hybrid treatment, SMART-CPT (CogSMART+CPT). This study compared the efficacy of standard CPT w...

Abstract Although trauma-focused treatment, including Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), effectively reduces PTSD symptoms, treatment dropout, nonresponse, and relapse are substantial. Executive functioning (EF) is essential to engage the cognitive skills involved in CPT (e.g., inhibiting/evaluating distorted thoughts, flexibly generating alternative thoughts). It was hypothesized that worse baseline EF would be associated with reduced CPT completion and responsivity. Seventy-four Iraq/Afghanis...

ABSTRACTObjective: The objective of this study is to assess utility of in vivo myelin imaging in combat Veterans with and without history of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). We hypothesized that those with history of mTBI would have lower myelin water fraction (MWF), a marker of myelin integrity and content, than those without, and lower MWF would be associated with worse speeded attention/processing speed.Research design: Combat Veterans (N = 70) with (n = 42) and without history of mTBI (n ...
