an article i read recently discussed how c-section births prevent newborns from receiving a dose of brain-boosting proteins critical for development of the hippocampus. the stress of natural delivery induces ucp2 protein expression in hippocampus neurons, which encourages proper development. the deficits incurred suggest long-term functional and behavior deficits in adults. the article provides a clear outline of the problem, but doesn't deliberate on the prospect of remediation. being scientifically illiterate, i was hoping someone could provide some elucidation on realistic short-term and long-term prospects of remediation. i.e. would upregulating ucp2 in adult hippocampus be conceivably expected to offer therapeutic response? or could targeted drug therapy promote improvements? thanks
