The placenta is vital for fetal growth, and compromised function is associated with abnormal development, especially of the brain. Linking placental function to brain development is a new field we have dubbed neuroplacentology. Approximately 380,000 infants in the United States each year abruptly lose placental support upon premature birth, and more than 10% of pregnancies are affected by more insidious placental dysfunction such as preeclampsia or infection. Abnormal fetal brain development or… Expand
Neuroplacentology in congenital heart disease: placental connections to neurodevelopmental outcomes
TLDR
It is proposed that in CHD placental dysfunction contributes to decreased fetal cerebral oxygen delivery resulting in poor brain growth, brain abnormalities, and impaired neurodevelopment. Expand
Placental neurosteroids shape cerebellar development and social behaviour
TLDR
It is demonstrated that targeted placental ALLO loss leads to permanent changes in brain development in a sex- and regionally-specific manner, and suggests that identifying placental hormone insufficiency or preterm loss may offer novel therapeutic opportunities to prevent later neurobehavioural disorders. Expand
Placenta and Cord Blood as Source of Immune Markers of Offspring Neurodevelopment and Psychopathology
TLDR
The role of placenta and cord blood as sources of immune markers and the potential pathways related to neurodevelopment and psychiatric diseases later in life are discussed. Expand
Placental endocrine function shapes cerebellar development and social behavior
TLDR
It is shown that placenta allopregnanolone (ALLO), a progesterone-derived GABA-A receptor (GABAAR) modulator, reduction alters neurodevelopment in a sex- linked manner, revealing a new role for a placental hormone in shaping brain regions and behaviors in asex-linked manner. Expand
Perinatal Inflammation and Adult Psychopathology: From Preclinical Models to Humans
Perinatal psychiatry deals primarily with women’s mental health before labor and up to the first year post-childbirth and the growth and development of their offspring. Early insults to theExpand
Perinatal inflammation and placental programming of neonatal stroke
TLDR
This experimental, triple-encounter among perinatal inflammation, focal ischemia, and global hypoxia, clinically supported by current and pre-existing clinical data, generates not only a third kind of pathophysiological hypothesis for NAIS but also provides compelling evidence for the need for innovative, preventive, and curative trials combining anti-inflammatory molecules with therapeutic hypoxic neurolysis.

The close link between the fetal programming imprinting and neurodegeneration in adulthood: The key role of “hemogenic endothelium” programming
TLDR
The proposed NeuroDegD are the result of the complex process of imprinting on fetal hemogenic endothelium, from which the microglial cells make to origin, and the central role of placenta and epigenetic mechanisms in mediating the short and long-term effects has been described. Expand
Perinatal compromise contributes to programming of GABAergic and glutamatergic systems leading to long‐term effects on offspring behaviour
TLDR
This review summarises the current evidence and recent literature about the impact of various perinatal insults on the epigenome and the common mechanisms that may explain the similarity of behavioural outcomes occurring following diversePerinatal compromise. Expand
Origins and Impact of Psychological Traits in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
TLDR
Prenatal androgenized rodent models reflecting the anxiety-like phenotype of PCOS in the offspring, found evidence for the altered placenta and androgen receptor function in the amygdala, a previously unknown mechanism that may be critical in understanding how maternal androgen excess can increase the risk of developing anxiety disorders in daughters and partly in sons of PCos mothers. Expand
Neonatal neuron specific enolase, a sensitive biochemical marker of neuronal damage, is increased in preeclampsia: A retrospective cohort study
TLDR
For the first time, this research has suggested the increase of neonatal NSE in preeclampsia, and the quantity of maternal proteinuria may be able to predict neonatalNSE elevation. Expand

TLDR
Severe fetal placental vascular lesions are correlated highly with neurologic impairment and cerebral palsy and make them strong candidates for the antepartum processes that place fetuses at risk for brain injury during the intrapartum period. Expand
