RESEARCH FINDS NEW EVIDENCE THAT CHRONIC AND SHORT-TERM STRESS
CAUSES WIDE-RANGING CHANGES IN BRAIN STRUCTURE AND PERFORMANCE
Early-life stress, chronic stress, and even short-term stress change how the brain is shaped — and how it functions
Washington, DC — Research released today reports new evidence that a wide range of stressful experiences change the physical structure and function of the brain, potentially affecting child development, adult brain wiring, and cognitive performance. The findings were reported at Neuroscience 2008, the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience and the world’s largest source of emerging news about brain science and health. View full release.
