Title: METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR DIAGNOSIS OF POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a method of detecting PTSD in a subject comprising measurement and analysis of brain wave patterns from a subject and determination of a value for one or more neuromarkers from the brain wave pattern. The present invention additionally relates to a system that can be used to diagnose the presence or severity of PTSD in a subject, and to a computer program product for detecting PTSD in a subject by determining if the value of the one or more neuromarkers is above a designated threshold, or is increased or decreased relative to a control value. The invention can also be used to track recovery during and following PTSD therapy, and also as a means for predicting response to therapy and the potential for relapse.
