Treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is not always effective, and as the increasing demand for better management of PTSD and combat-related PTSD (CR-PTSD) infiltrates the UK media, so does a pressing need to understand individual variance in disease aetiology. Recent research in psychology, neuroscience and genetics has separately investigated how and why PTSD affects individuals differently. Here, we report on research on trauma, spatial processing and genetics to demonstrate that the hippocampus, part of the medial temporal lobe, is key to understanding how genes and environment interact to determine susceptibility to, and successful recovery from, PTSD. We argue that the integration of these research disciplines will bring new possibilities for prevention and treatment of PTSD within the Ministry of Defence (MOD), emergency services, National Health Service (NHS) and beyond.
