Early life stress (ELS) is highly associated with development of psychopathology and mood disorders in adulthood.
Genetic studies have identified variation in the gene calcium voltage-gated channel subunit alpha1C (CACNA1C) to increase risk for several psychiatric disorders.
This poster assesses the expression of Cacna1c following prepubertal stress.
