Child Maltreatment and Mother-Child Transmission of Stress Physiology Author: Hibel LC, et al. (2019), Child Maltreatment. ABSTRACT: Background Advancing understanding of the developmental origins of neuroendocrine-immune (NEI) functioning is key to elucidating the biological mechanisms involved in health and disease risk across the lifespan. This study examined whether prenatal maternal hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) activity moderates child […]

Childhood abuse predicts affective symptoms via HPA reactivity during mother-infant stress Author: Kern S & Laurent HK. (2019), Psychoneuroendocrinology. ABSTRACT: Despite extensive literature positing the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis as a mechanism in the association between early childhood maltreatment and later adult psychopathology, empirical support for this full pathway is lacking. We tested indirect effects of […]
