CONCLUSIONS: These findings of lower values for the benzodiazepine
receptor binding measure of distribution volume are consistent with fewer
benzodiazepine receptors and/or reduced affinity of receptor binding in
the medial prefrontal cortex in patients with PTSD||J. D. Bremner; R. B. Innis; S. M. Southwick; L. Staib; S. Zoghbi; D. S. Charney. Decreased benzodiazepine receptor binding in prefrontal cortex in combat-related posttraumatic stress disorder.
