Developmental Programming

Pat Levitt, PhD

June 2010

Dr. Pat Levitt, from the Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, discusses the relationship between mental and physical health as it relates to development. He discusses key development concepts such as toxic stress, gene-by-environment interactions, brain architecture, and the reward system. Dr. Levitt suggests how this knowledge should be translated to the public, and concludes with an overview of key areas where potential development interventions could be promising.
