Abstract:

Environmental experiences play a powerful role in shaping mental health across the life course. Exposure to trauma, socioeconomic disadvantage, and other forms of chronic stress and adversity are associated with elevated risk for multiple forms of psychopathology throughout development. Biological psychiatry research has revealed that alterations in brain structure and function are key mechanisms through which adverse environmental experiences contribute to the emergence of psychopathology. Characterizing the neurobiological pathways that underlie the links between adverse experiences and the onset of mental disorders is an active and burgeoning area of research.
