Abstract

Prenatal stress is associated with a wide variety of psychopathologies in later life such as ADHD, anxiety disorders, schizphrenia and autimsm. During pregnancy offspring is exposed to maternal signals that give information about the extra-uterine environment. When in a stressfull environment maternal glucorticoids reach the developing fetus and potentially alter its developmental track. Prenatal stress and glucorticoid exposure during pregnancy alter offspring HPA-functioning and brain morphology. These effects are mediated by epigenetic mechanisms. Many effects of PS can be put in an evolutionary perspective and give evidence for a predictive adaptive response to stress
