The current chapter focuses on the idea that the constructs reviewed in the previous chapters such as executive function, emotion regulation, and memory processing abnormalities are not unique to PTSD. Many of the neurobiological correlates of PTSD are also found in depression, anxiety, and substance use disorders. The research reviewed in the current chapter suggests that the constructs of executive function, emotion regulation, and memory processing abnormalities may underlie these conditions and define core mechanisms across mental health disorders. Future directions, such as a shift in the field to incorporate neuroscience into personalized treatment for PTSD, as well as current imperatives, such as the need to assess for trauma histories in differential diagnosis, are discussed.
