The temporal dynamics of resilience: Neural recovery as a biomarker

  • Henrik Walter (a1), Susanne Erk (a1) and Ilya M. Veer (a1)


Resilience can be defined as the capability of an individual to maintain health despite stress and adversity. Here we suggest to study the temporal dynamics of neural processes associated with affective perturbation and emotion regulation at different time scales to investigate the mechanisms of resilience. Parameters related to neural recovery might serve as a predictive biomarker for resilience.
