Professor Judit Gervai, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and a Member of the Second Generation, will be returning via Zoom to speak to the Network about recent developments in her research into Transgenerational Transmission of Trauma. Professor Gervai, will be introduced by her son, Network Committee Member Professor Gabor Csanyi. Professor Gervai will review genetic and gene-environment interaction effects on developing early attachment relationships. Studies investigating the interaction of genes of monoamine neurotransmission with the parenting environment in the course of early relationship development suggest that children’s differential susceptibility to the rearing environment depends partly on genetic differences. A short account of the most important methodological problems to be overcome in molecular genetic studies of psychological and psychiatric phenotypes will also be given. Start time 6.20pm for 6.30pm GMT to give everyone time to set up and check their Zoom connection.
