Attentional and sensory neuro-dysregulation in adults with PTSD

With a unique collaboration between Haifa University – Department of Occupational Therapy, Technion – Department of Neuroscience, and Lev HaSharon – Adult Mental Health Clinic, we investigate attentional and sensory neurodysregulation mechanisms and their impact on daily life function in adults with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). By combining several neuro-imaging techniques with clinician administered questionnaires as well as self-reports, we aim to gather a large variety of data, bridging the gap between neuroscience, clinical practice and daily life symptoms.
