Animals that experienced violence early in life showed greater sensitivity to vasopressin, and had abnormal serotonin patterns. Researchers believe the same thing happens in people. (Brynie, Faith Hickman. 101 questions your brain has asked about itself but couldn’t answer until now. p 1225-129. NY: The Millbrook Press, 1998.)

Serotonin is key to modulating impulsive behaviors. Noradrenaline is the alarm hormone designed to alert the system to respond to danger. Stressful environments, when the levels of serotonin and noradrenaline are being built, can create lifetime patterns. (Karr-Morse, Robin, and Meredith S. Wiley. Ghosts from the Nursery. p 43-44. NY: Atlantic Monthly Press, 1997.)
