Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a common debilitating psychiatric disorder that develops in approximately 10% of trauma-exposed individuals. A promising novel preventive intervention for PTSD is intranasal administration of the neuropeptide oxytocin, as this has a beneficial effect on neurobiological and socio-emotional factors involved in vulnerability to PTSD. Jessie Frijling assesses the effects of intranasal oxytocin administration on acute functioning of the fear neurocircuitry and on the development of PTSD symptoms in individuals recently exposed to trauma.
