Prenatal Maternal Stress Effects on Brain Cell Composition

Hi and welcome to my thesis webpage! My name is Davide and I’m a student from the Master’s Programme in Applied Ethology and Animal Biology at Linköping University.

Shedding a light on the world of animal suffering has always been my vocation, and my journey so far gave me the possibility to observe first-hand the detrimental consequences of stress in animals.

For my master thesis, I had the opportunity to investigate in chickens the effects of Prenatal Maternal Stress , a common phenomena where the suffering of one (the mother) affects many (her offspring).
