El vínculo materno es fundamental para el establecimiento y mantenimiento de las redes sinápticas, y el desarrollo morfofisiológico y emocional de los individuos. Los niños maltratados o rechazados son más propensos a desarrollar psicopatologías. Los modelos animales permiten una aproximación experimental a mecanismos involucrados en alteraciones ocasionadas por estrés temprano.
