Child Abuse And Brain Changes  

There are many cases where child abuse victims have committed suicide due to the fact that there has been a significant chemical change in their brain.

According to researchers at the McGill University in Montreal, Canada, there were major chemical differences between the genes in the brains of men who died due to other reasons and the genes in the brains of men who had committed suicide. The study found that all 13 suicide victims had suffered childhood abuse.

According to a study published in Cerebrum in late 2000, child abuse results in permanent physical changes to the developing human brain. The chemical changes in brain structure cause significant emotional and psychological problems in adulthood.

According to Martin Teicher and his colleagues, adults who suffered abuse in their childhood had exhibited abnormal development of the left hemisphere of the brain. The abnormal development of the left hemisphere of the brain may be associated with loss of memory and serious psychological problems like depression. Adults who had suffered abuse in their childhood were more likely to suffer from epileptic seizures.

           Researchers have observed that child abuse survivors fail to combine the functions of the right and left hemispheres and this may be due to a decrease in the size of the corpus callosum -- the fibers that connect to the right and left sides of the brain. Females who suffered sexual abuse in their childhood had a decrease in the size of the corpus callosum. Even males who suffered neglect in their childhood had a decrease in the size of corpus callosum. This can lead to a variety of emotional changes including anger, sadness, intense laughter without feeling happy, fear and serenity.
