    Matrescence and Adolescence: Which has a greater impact on the brain?

    In this episode of Mommy Brain Revisited I talk with Dr. Susanna Carmona from the Neuroimaging Centre in the Laboratory for Medical Imaging at the Hospital General Universitario Gregorio Maranon in Madrid, Spain. We talk about her recent research on brain changes during the transition to motherhood (matrescence) and how significant these changes are – as significant as during adolescence. We also talk about what this means, what more we need to know about the brain with motherhood, fatherhood, maternal mental illness and effects of pregnancy loss. So many questions need answers!
