High Anxiety

Youthful stress impairs adult brain's ability to mint new cells

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: Childhood hardship forges wiser, tougher adults--or so parents tell their whining children. But in rats, early stress can cause lasting harm to the brain. A new study shows that separating rat pups from their mothers slashes the adult rodents' production of new cells in a brain region crucial for memory and response to stress.
