About the Project

The adverse effects of child maltreatment on mental and physical health are well documented in the literature. Although direct pathways via physiological mechanisms have been proposed for this association, research using biomarkers elucidating autonomic regulation in childhood maltreatment survivors is rare. Therefore, the proposed study will focus on examining the potential impact of childhood maltreatment on heart rate variability (HRV) during a resting baseline and in response stress.
