Which Influences More Gene Changes in the Brain?

This animal study was conducted by researchers at Ohio State University and presented at Neuroscience 2023, the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience. ( A surprising thing happened when researchers began exploring whether early-life stress compounds the effects of a childhood head injury on health and behavior later in life. It's already known that head injuries are common in young kids, especially from falling. "We wanted to understand whether experiencing a traumatic brain injury in the context of early life stress circumstances could modulate the response to the brain injury. And using an animal model allows us to really get into the mechanisms through which these two things might be impacting brain development as it's occurring," said seni...
