Adult patients with posttraumatic stress disorder have a severe alteration in their personality, mood, and behavior. This is associated with a dysfunction in one part of the brain called prefrontal cortex, and they may start losing their own limits and sense of morality. Mood shifts are not only limited to the exposure of memories of the traumatic event and external triggers, but maybe aggravated by them, and the family often perceives that the patient is no longer himself or herself.
