Wash. Post on Poverty, Stress, and Brain Impairment in Children
A recent newspaper article of interest: Rob Stein, "Research Links Poor Kids' Stress, Brain Impairment," Washington Post, Apr. 6, 2009. The second paragraph of the article: "Now, research is providing what could be crucial clues to explain how childhood poverty translates into dimmer chances of success: Chronic stress from growing up poor appears to have a direct impact on the brain, leaving children with impairment in at least one key area -- working memory."
