‘Neural correlates of face familiarity in institutionalised children and links to attachment disordered behaviour’.
Open Access paper from the JCPP
Background – One of the most well-documented sequelae of early maltreatment and institutionalisation is attachment problems, including behaviours under the labels of reactive attachment disorder (RAD) and disinhibited social engagement disorder (DSED). Despite growing evidence of the neurobiological effects of institutionalisation, the neural correlates of these behavioural patterns are largely unknown.
