eLABE Study

Early Life Adversity, Biological Embedding (eLABE) and Risk for Developmental Precursors of Mental Disorders

https://wunderlab.wustl.edu/about/

We are currently partnering with the March of Dimes to work on a study called eLABE (Early Life Adversity, Biological Embedding, and Risk for Developmental Precursors of Mental Disorders), which examines how experiences during pregnancy and early in life affects mothers’ and children’s brain development and well-being.  Here we focus on the effects of early life adversity on brain, emotion regulation and cognitive control outcomes relevant to risk for mental disorders, beginning antenatally and extending to age 3.  Mothers in this study will soon deliver or have delivered recently.  We are not currently enrolling participants in this study outside of the March of Dimes 1000 Women Cohort Study.

The EEDP and WUNDER Lab have recruited mothers enrolled in the March of Dimes 1000 Women Cohort study to participate in the eLABE study. Through eLABE, we hope to better understand how experiences during pregnancy and early infant life affect both mothers’ and children’s well-being. Mothers in this study will soon deliver or have delivered recently.
