Stress perception, response, adaptation, and coping strategies are individually distinct, and the sequel of stress and/or glucocorticoids is also distinct between subjects. Researchers from ICVS have discovered that early life exposure to glucocorticoids program the cholinergic circuit, leading to increased hyper-reactivity to negative stimuli. This programming effect seemed to be restricted to the mesopontine circuitry, hinting that this pathway may be important in setting individual stress v ...
