    Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 7:e52528. 2012
    ..Exposure to multiple types of maltreatment is more commonly associated with morphological alterations in corticolimbic regions. These findings fit with preclinical studies showing that visual cortex is a highly plastic structure...
