Researchers Identify Gene Linked to PTSD | Psych Central News

Researchers at Boston University School of Medicine and Veterans Affairs Boston Healthcare System note the results of a genome-wide association study of PTSD suggest that variations in the retinoid-related orphan receptor alpha (RORA) gene are linked to the development of PTSD.
