Developmental Human Behavioral Epigenetics: Principles, Methods, Evidence, and Future Directions, Volume 23, a new volume in the Translational Epigenetics series, offers the first systematic account of theoretical G79 frameworks, methodological approaches, findings, and future directions in the field of human behavioral epigenetics. Featuring contributions from leading scientists and international researchers, this book provides a comprehensive overview of human behavioral epigenetics, with a close examination of evidence gathered to-date from animal models, challenges of human-based research and clinical translation, pathways towards drug discovery, and next steps in research.

Areas of focus include prenatal stress exposures, preterm behavioral epigenetics, intergenerational exposures, trauma and neglect, socio-economic conditions, maternal caregiving and attachment, study design, and epigenetics and psychotherapy.

  • Enables more effective study design and methods application in behavioral epigenetics research across human and animal models
  • Examines findings in human behavioral epigenetics to-date
  • Features contributions from leading international researchers in behavioral epigenetics

Since 2010, he has worked as a researcher and clinical psychologist at the 0-3 Center for the at-Risk Infant of the Scientific Institute IRCCS Eugenio Medea in Bosisio Parini, Italy. He has published scientific papers in the areas of developmental psychology, pediatrics, nursing sciences, neurosciences, and psychobiology. His research interests include developmental psychobiology during the first months of life, including preterm birth, socio-emotional development and stress regulation, mother-infant interaction and regulation, behavioral genetics, and epigenetics.
Montirosso, Rosario
Dr. Rosario Montirosso is a research scientist, and clinical and developmental psychologist. He received his master's degree in clinical psychology (1987) at the University of Rome "La Sapienza" in Rome, Italy and received his Ph.D. in 1991 from the Institute for Research on Intrapsychic and Relational Processes, IRPIR, Rome, Italy. Since 1989, he has worked as a researcher and clinical psychologist at the Scientific Institute IRCCS "Eugenio Medea” in Bosisio Parini, Italy.
