The aim of Laura Nawijn’s research is to increase our insight into neurobiological and genetic factors associated with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), to potentially open up new avenues for treatment targets. She provides an overview of the nature of reward deficits in PTSD by systematically investigating literature on responses to positive stimuli in PTSD patients. She also investigates whether intranasal oxytocin administration can beneficially affect reward functioning and functional connectivity networks in PTSD, as these are associated with psychotherapy success.
