Epigenetic programming and chronic physical aggression

Richard Tremblay


University of Montreal, Montreal, Canada.


Chronic physical aggression has been linked to cortisol secretion and testosterone. Such links could be programmed by environmental effects on gene expression during pregnancy and early childhood. This paper will review research on the chronic aggression-cortisol-testosterone links and summarize a research program on pre and postnatal epigenetic programming.
