PLACENTA and FETAL BRAIN



Studies conducted by scientists from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine-Ohio, Keck School of Medicine, Los Angeles Ca. and Vanderbilt University Medical Center have shown that serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine/5-HT), secreted by the placenta is a crucial neurotransmitter in embryonic brain development. Thus, placenta regulates the neurodevelopment (forebrain-hindbrain), through maternal-fetal interactions with lasting and long-term effect on adult mental development.

PLACENTA y CEREBRO FETAL

Estudios realizados por cientificos del Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine-Ohio, Keck School of Medicine, Los Angeles Ca. y Vanderbilt University Medical Center, han demostrado que la serotonina (5-hydroxytryptamine/5-HT), segregada por la placenta es un neurotrasmisor crucial en el desarrollo del cerebro embrionario. Asi, la placenta regula el neurodesarrollo (cerebro anterior-posterior), mediante interacciones materno-fetales, con efecto duradero y a largo plazo en el desarrollo mental del adulto.
