"Journal of Psychiatry is the best Open Access Journal in Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. Once the articles are published on the website it is easily and freely accessible to readers. Articles published in journal of psychiatry gain high citations.Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a prevalent, chronic, and disabling anxiety disorder that may develop following exposure to a traumatic event. The majority of individuals with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder often have comorbid psychiatric conditions such as major depression, generalized anxiety disorder, and substance use disorders, and are at increased risk for suicide. Despite the public health significance of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder relatively little is known about the etiology or pathophysiology of this disorder and pharmacotherapy development to date has been largely opportunistic instead of mechanismbased. One promising target for modulation is Tropomyosin Receptor Kinase B (TrkB), the receptor for Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), a signaling pathway important for neuronal plasticity, survival, and growth. âAlexander Neumeister, The Role of BDNF-TrkB Signaling in the Pathogenesis of PTSDâOMICS publishes original scientific and specialized articles on all aspects of clinical chemistry, medical biochemistry and related scientific disciplines. Also provides the researchers and young minds descriptions of new experimental methods of biochemical importance, or new interpretations of existing result.
