Specific changes in brain structure after different forms of child abuse

"Similarly, victims of emotional mistreatment were found to have a reduction of the thickness of the cerebral cortex in specific areas associated with self-awareness, self-evaluation and emotional regulation."

This particular study is limited to the brains of 52 women, but it's interesting nonetheless.

Wow, that is very interesting. I wonder why they have not discovered the correlation between the different brain parts affected and the type of abuse, sooner?
