Puberty and ensuing adolescence represent a time when the brain is rapidly developing and is sensitive to environmental stimuli. This lecture will discuss evidence that pubertal adversity puts females at risk for altered stress responding and maternal behavior later in life. Evidence will be presented that pubertal stress leads to an enduring programmatic event in the chromatin landscape in several brain regions, which may underlie both the lasting transcriptomic and behavioral consequences of pubertal stress.
