4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Somers Family Hall 216 (Danforth Campus)

“Previous Institutionalization Is Followed by Broader Amygdala–Hippocampal–PFC Network Connectivity during Aversive Learning in Human Development”

“Causal effects of the early caregiving environment on development of stress response systems in children”

Announcing a new Discussion Group: Early Stressors on Brain Development. A discussion group format will allow presentations/overviews on subject matter that isn’t necessarily tied to a single article. Potential topics include

  • socioeconomic status
  • stress
  • nutrition
  • depression
  • early institutional/foster care

The group will meet on the third Thursday of each month, 4-5p, and meetings will alternate between the Danforth and Medical Campuses. Stay tuned as a web page is created for this discussion group. In the meantime, contact Anneliese Schaefer if you’d like to be added to a distribution list.
