Postnatal handling alters the activation of stress-related neuronal circuitries.

Abstract

Postnatal handling, as a crucial early life experience, plays an essential role in the development of hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis responses to stress. The impact of postnatal handling on the reactivity of stress-related neuronal circuitries was investigated in animals that were handled for the first 21 days of life and as adults they were exposed to… (More)
