Where is My Mother? Uncovering Mechanisms of Neglect in the Maternal Brain - CARTA presents Impact of Early Life Deprivation on Cognition – Danielle Stolzenberg

published 1 month ago by UCTV

In 2017 alone, an estimated 674,000 children were victims of abuse and neglect in the United States and over 1,000 of these children died from maltreatment. Mothers were the perpetrators in 69% of these cases. How does dysfunction in the maternal brain arise? Danielle Stolzenberg (UC Davis) describes new research that has shed some light on how the brain regulates maternal and neglectful responses to infants with a particular emphasis on how the brain might change as mothers transition between these two behavioral states.
