“More than a Feeling: How Stress Alters the Brain”
by Dr. Rosemarie Perry
Feeling worn out? Run down? Under pressure? Stress is a pesky feeling.
But what exactly is it? And when does too much of it become harmful?
By tuning into our bodies we can build resilience to stress. Don‛t worry…Know Science!
Dr. Rosemarie Perry is a developmental psychobiologist at New York University and Vice President of Know Science. Rosemarie holds a B.S. degree from the University of Delaware in Neuroscience and a Ph.D. from New York University School of Medicine in Physiology and Neuroscience. As a Ph.D. student, she worked in the lab of Dr. Regina Sullivan, studying how exposure to pain and early-life stress (particularly from an abusive caregiver) impacts the developing brain and behavior throughout the lifespan. She is currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow in the NYU Neuroscience and Education Lab (run by Dr. Clancy Blair and Dr. Cybele Raver), where her research explores how poverty affects child development.
