anxiety regulation...

"Compared with adult rats who received less nurturing, in adult rats who had been licked and groomed more by their mothers the amygdala was found to contain many more benzodiazepine receptors. Maternal care in infancy influenced the physiology of anxiety regulation in the brain of the adult. These differences were not explained by genetic factors."
