The association between allostatic load and brain: A systematic review

Highlights

• Elevated allostatic load (AL) might be related to brain alterations in adulthood.

• In schizophrenia, AL correlates with larger choroid plexus and fornix alterations.

• Reduced hippocampal volume is related to higher AL in schizophrenia and late life.

• AL is related to cortical thinning in overweight/obesity.
