Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of the brain's stress response system (the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis or HPA) and how early stressors can influence this system as the child develops. It reviews research suggesting that adverse effects on the stress response system produced by neglectful parenting can be reversed by subsequent more responsive care.
