PTSD following early-life trauma is ideal for investigating the interplay of developmental conditions, particular elicitations of evolutionarily conserved functions and species-typical developmental trajectory in the expression of particular phenotypes. A proper account of the particular etiology and features of the disorders requires an explanatory model aiming at the elucidation of both ultimate and proximate causations.

Keywords:   trauma and stressor-related disorders, ultimate and proximate explanations, species-typical developmental trajectory, evolution
