Enriched Environments in Adolescence Prevent Long-Term Effects of Early Impoverished Environments. Science Briefs
National Scientific Council on the Developing Child
"Science Briefs" summarize the findings and implications of a recent study in basic science or clinical research. This Brief summarizes the findings and implications of "Enriched Environment Experience Overcomes the Memory Deficits and Depressive-like Behavior Induced by Early Life Stress" (M. Cui; Y. Yang; J. Zhang; H. Han; W. Ma; H. Li; R. Mao; L. Xu; W. Hao; and J. Cao.) The study found that the negative effects of early stress were mitigated by exposure to positive environments immediately after experiencing an impoverished environment, preventing rats from experiencing cognitive deficits and disrupted emotional behavior.
