Early-life anxiety is a risk factor for development of anxiety disorders, depression, and substance abuse. Research has revealed alterations in brain structure and function as well as underlying molecular factors that predispose individuals to develop pathological anxiety. This talk will discuss new treatment approaches that build on these findings, including efforts to increase the plasticity of specific brain circuits implicated in stress-related psychopathology.
