SCIENTISTS REVEAL SIGNIFICANT BEHAVIORAL IMPACTS OF EARLY LIFE STRESS, THE IMPORTANTANCE OF TIMED THERAPIES TO COUNTERACT THEM
Scientists at the OHSU Oregon National Primate Research Center and the University of Pittsburgh report significant stress early in life can have varying lifelong impacts depending on the timing of the stress exposure. The research also demonstrates that the impact can become even more profound when coupled with stress in adulthood. In a related but separate study, the researchers also observed the importance of timing in initiating therapies meant to counteract the impacts of early-life stress. The research is being presented this week at the 2004 Society for Neuroscience meeting in San Diego.
