Maternal Depression Calibrates Infants' Neuroendocrine, Autonomic, and Inflammatory Stress Responsiveness

Project: Research project

Project Details


PROJECT NARRATIVE The purpose of this study is to determine how mothers' depression calibrates their babies' biological sensitivity to stress over time, and how this calibration translates into child emotional and behavioral problems. This will help to identify the roots of stress-related disorder and suggest targets for early intervention to interrupt the intergenerational transmission of stress-related health problems.
