The Effectiveness of a Standardized Mixture of Antioxidants as a Preventative Treatment for PTSD and its Symptoms in C. elegans

Proposal & Significance

Click here for the document as well. This research looks at the gap in scientific studies conducted for the relationship between oxidative stress (electron imbalance in the brain) and PTSD. This project has never been done before in the model organism I used, and shows PTSD in a simple model to understand the complex systems.
