Event Overview

Pregnancy, childbirth, and early motherhood cause numerous obvious physical changes, but they also induce long-lasting effects on the neuroplasticity and neurological patterns of mothers’ brains. These changes affect behavioral responses and brain functions. In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist, Robert Froemke and Liisa Galea will discuss the neurological changes that occur during motherhood and their effect on behavior and brain health.

Topics to be covered
  • Social transmission of maternal behavior
  • Long term effects of motherhood on brain health
  • Thursday, May 27, 2021
    2:30 - 4:00 PM Eastern Time
