Prof. Frances Champagne: How Do Early Life Experiences Shape Behavior?

February 8, 2017
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Faculty House, 64 Morningside Dr., New York, NY 10027 Presidential Ballroom
Dr. Champagne explores the molecular pathways through which early experiences shape the activity of genes and the consequences of these effects for behavior. These “epigenetic” pathways are a fundamental link between genes and environments that may account for both risk and resilience to the effects of early life adversity and the “inheritance” of environmental effects on the brain.
