Several studies have shown that exposure to early life stress (childhood abuse or neglect for example), leads to a higher risk of developing brain disorders in adulthood. Kit-Yi Yam carries out research into the short or long-term sex-specific effects of early-life stress on the brain and metabolism. She also investigates some of the neuro-biological mechanisms that could underlie the beneficial effects of diet on cognition.
