Abstract Background. Ethnic minority individuals have an increased risk of developing a psychotic disorder, particularly if they live in areas of ethnic segregation, or low own group ethnic density.
Stress can trigger enduring changes in neural circuits and synapses. The behavioral and hormonal consequences of stress can also be transmitted to others, In female mice that were subjected to authentic stress, this metaplasticity was diminished following interactions with a naive partner. metaplasticity could be transmitted sequentially from the stressed subject to multiple partners.
