Prenatal stress (PS) increases the risk of depressive disorders in adult offspring. The pathophysiology of depressive disorders has been linked to hippocampal dysfunction; however, whether and how PS attenuates the development and function of hippocampal networks remains unknown. Using a rat model of PS, in which pregnant mothers receive daily restraint… CONTINUE READING
