Suboptimal maternal care is a form of chronic early-life stress (ELS) and a risk factor for mental illness and behavioral impairments throughout the life span. The amygdala, particularly the basolateral amygdala (BLA), exhibits exquisite sensitivity to ELS and could promote dysregulation of stress reactivity and anxiety-related disorders. While ELS...

It is now well established that many of society's most devastating and costly neurological diseases and disorders arise from trauma at, or shortly after birth. In some cases deficits are seen in childhood and in others they are substantially delayed; arising in adolescence or young adulthood. In either case the initial insult initiates a metabolic ...
