Head Wounds are Good For You!

At least that is what some studies have found about some Vietnam vets with certain head wounds.
Buzzle blogged about a study on vets with and without PTSD that found injuries to the prefrontal cortex or the amygdala were protective, at least with regard to developing PTSD.
Later in the article there is a suggestion that transcranial magnetic stimulation may play a role in the future treatment of PTSD based on these findings.
