Study highlights effects of psychosocial stress in adolescent brain

June 27, 2017

Recent findings indicated associations between hyperactive amygdala responses and regions responsible for emotional processing with high levels of psychosocial stress in adolescents with greater conduct and hyperactivity/inattention problems.

“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.
