Bioelectrical chemical model, Interaction of brain and development (see the Transforming the Workforce - Chapter 3) overall Health, Risk, Resiliency and poverty
Terms in this set (23)
growing up poor, lack of food and shelter, no health care, learning disabilities. Poverty w/in the 1st 5 years more harmful than later
other risk factors
single parent, low maternal ed had - effects in the 1st year not income
brief increases in heart rate, mild elevations in stress hormone levels
Tolerable stress response:
Serious and temporary. Stress is about perception and context.
Toxic stress response:
long term stress disrupt the development of brain architecture and other organ systems, and increase the risk for stress-related disease and cognitive impairment, well into the adult years.
When children face strong, frequent, and prolonged adversity, they experience
toxic stress can
compromise neural connections dedicated to learning and reasoning at a time where there should be growth and stronger connectivity
supportive, responsive relationship with a caring adult can
reverse or prevent the damaging effects of toxic stress response.
children living in poverty report
emotional and behavioral problems at a higher percentage as those who are from non-poor families
negative changes in the cognitive domain caused by poverty appear at age __, and either sustain or increase by age __
damage to different layers (of the brain) affects
the behaviors that are controlled by the layers
social experiences of adversity, living in impoverished communities of low socioeconomic status (SES), and stress can
restructure, as well as damage, the brain's architecture and the means in which it functions
Being poor does not equal
If death is part of your organic experience, then you will be able to handle it more successfully.
Bioelectrochemical model of development has ___ levels
Level 1 Unitary Child
Level 2 organic
(organs--brain, heart, lungs, etc
Level 3 cellular
(cells-- nerve, blood, skin, etc)
Level 4 molecular
(molecules--proteins, enzymes, fats
Level 5 elemental/organic
(chemical elements--oxygen, hydrogen, iron, etc)
Level 6 subatomic
(electrically charged and neutral particles--electrons, protons, neutrons)
the desired personal/social characteristics that people value become the criteria of...
what kind of bioelectrochemical conditions are worth fostering
Bioelectrochemical model looks at changes within the
