Chronic stress in early life causes anxiety, aggression in adulthood, neurobiologists find

Chronic stress in early life causes anxiety, aggression in adulthood, neurobiologists find | Nanotechnology and Engineering | Scoop.it
In experiments to assess the impacts of social stress upon adolescent mice, both at the time they are experienced and during adulthood, a laboratory team conducted many different kinds of stress tests and means of measuring their impacts. The research indicates that a 'hostile environment in adolescence disturbs psychoemotional state and social behaviors of animals in adult life,' the team says.

An enzyme and synaptic plasticity: Novel role for the Pin1 molecule | Nanotechnology and Engineering | Scoop.it
Synapses are “dynamic” things: they can regulate their action in neural processes related to learning, for example, but also as a consequence of diseases. A research team has demonstrated the role of a small enzyme (Pin1) in synaptic plasticity.
