The issues surrounding poverty and the ensuing physiology of chronic stress as it affects brain physiology and our ability to make good decisions are discussed with Bruce McEwen PhD. McEwen has had a long career exploring and investigating the effects of poverty on mental health, particularly as it affects children and their mental and emotional development. He will answer questions such as, "Can we train children to think better under the conditions of poverty, and what are the physiologic effects of poverty on brain development?"
