Congratulations to Olivia Haller on her new publication in the Journal of Psychiatric Research entitled “White matter predictors of PTSD: Testing different machine learning models in a sample of Black American women.” This study tested the relationship between white matter microstructural integrity and PTSD diagnosis. Findings revealed improved classification when estimates of exposure to structural and interpersonal racism were added to models, highlighting how the relationship between neuroanatomical indices and PTSD may be nuanced across race and gender spectrums.
