  • 11:00 AM – 12:00pm

Early-life stress confers vulnerability for distal effects on  psychiatric illnesses and impaired cognition. Traditional rodent studies study early-life stress using prolonged disrupted mother-offspring relationships.  Dr. Glasper will present findings using the California mouse (Peromyscus californicus), a biparental rodent species that requires paternal care for offspring survival and typical development. Using paternal deprivation, her research elucidates the sex-specific effects of early-life stress and later-life chronic stress on stress axis vulnerability and cognitive function.
