Speaker information

Professor Eamon McCrory, UCL Psychology and Language Sciences

Childhood maltreatment is a strong predictor of mental and physical ill health. How does such adversity 'get under the skin'? Latent vulnerability is one way of thinking about how maltreatment calibrates biological and neurocognitive systems, in ways that may be adaptive in the short-term but incur long-term costs.
