      • Triple Network Functional Connectivity During Acute Stress in Adolescents and the Influence of Polyvictimization
        Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and NeuroimagingVol. 7Issue 9
        • Preview
          Exposure to both chronic and acute stressors can disrupt functional connectivity (FC) of the default mode network (DMN), salience network (SN), and central executive network (CEN), increasing risk for negative health outcomes. During adolescence, these stress-sensitive triple networks undergo critical neuromaturation that is altered by chronic exposure to general forms of trauma or victimization. However, no work has directly examined how acute stress affects triple network FC in adolescents or whether polyvictimization—exposure to multiple categories/subtypes of victimization—influences adolescent triple network neural acute stress response.
