Study highlights effects of psychosocial stress in adolescent brain

June 27, 2017

“Despite evidence that psychopathology and psychosocial stress may affect emotion perception at behavioral and neural levels, to our knowledge there have been no studies exploring how psychopathology-related symptoms and psychosocial stress interact to modulate amygdala activation related to emotional processing,” Erin Burke Quinlan, PhD, of King’s College London, and colleagues wrote.
