It's about development of the hippocampus and amygdala during adolescence. I forget the specifics, but the hippocampus development is impeded, which leads to learning disabilities and other cognitive issues, and the amygdala is overdeveloped, which causes emotional issues.

I don't remember having trauma during adolescence. But I had a hard time at shcool from bullies. I didn't had any learning disabilities during the school. Strange how they occurred in adulthood.
