The Impact of Early Experience on Childhood Brain Development: Ruth Kagi

On April 13, 2010, the Center on Children and Families at Brookings and the Center for the Study of Poverty and Inequality at Stanford University sponsored an event that focused on the science of early brain development and the role that chronic stress early in life plays in the arrested development of children raised in risky situations. The policy implications of these and similar findings were discussed. This segment features the Honorable Ruth Kagi, Representative, 32nd District, Washington State Legislature. (Representative Kagi was unable to attend in person and sent a recording instead.)
