Prenatal Stress Promotes the Development of Sensitivity
Our study examined whether prenatal stress increases sensitivity to parental care in an animal model.
Results showed that prairie voles that were prenatally stressed were more sensitive to the quality of care they received in terms of their later anxious behaviour and physiological reactivity.
Environmental Sensitivity and Serotonin Transporter Gene Variance: from Rats to Humans
Environmental Sensitivity is seen in both animals and humans, suggesting that is has a strong biological foundation.
