One of the discriminative features of veterans of combat who develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a severe deficiency in slow frequency amplitude in the occipital region of the brain. Often this is accompanied by a marked elevation of very high frequency amplitude frontally. These conditions are associated with poor stress tolerance, elevated mental activity and perseverative thought processes. The second reliable indicator of PTSD is severe blunting of the alpha response.
