Genetic inheritance, childhood experience, and adult environment all play important roles in human behavior, including neurological disorders with behavioral components.

Elucidating the lasting effects of early life stress can inform policy, advocacy, and intervention practices in an attempt to help protect our youth from long-term problems.
