Academics at the University of Muenster said that child abuse changes the structure of their brain.

After childhood shocks, in adulthood, these people are more likely to suffer from depression.

Scientists conducted a study where they analyzed the work of the brain of each of the 110 adult subjects hospitalized in connection with a serious mental disorder.

Researchers asked patients if they had experienced sexual or physical abuse in childhood.

As a result, it turned out that any violence in any of its manifestations led to a decrease in the insular cortex of the central nervous system.

According to experts, child abuse at times increases the likelihood of recurrence of the disease. By the way, such injuries are not treatable, and a person throughout his life will suffer from psychological disorders that can lead to suicide.
