Abstract

Does “partial” posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) occur after head injury? The authors found that attention bias to trauma-related threat stimuli and higher heart rate during trauma interview were not associated with PTSD symptom severity in 42 participants with severe head injury. They found no evidence for “partial” PTSD.
