Abstract

The effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are detrimental for one in eleven people (Miller, et al.,2018). It is not a phase, not something you can get over easily, it becomes a chemical imbalance in your brain. PTSD changes brain activity: it makes certain areas of the brain more active due to stress people are experiencing (Buhmann, & Andersen 2017). These stressful feelings contribute to the biological abnormalities such as memory triggering and emotional response as well as normal human brain function (Abdallah, et al. 2019).
