Neuropsychological Functioning in Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Pain

Both PTSD and pain are associated with impairments in neuropsychological functioning (e.g., Hart et al., 2000; Scott et al., 2015). Despite the clear link to cognitive impairment in both conditions and the high rates of comorbidity, the effects of both conditions concurrently on neuropsychological functioning have yet to be examined empirically. The present study examined group differences between groups with and without PTSD and pain, as well as comorbid PTSD and ...
