The concept of the multigenerational transmission process in Bowen theory is a testable concept, and findings from the fields of the neurobiology of attachment and stress reactivity are presented in this context. These areas of research focus on the limbic-HPA system and provide some initial support for: (1) how family interactions can have such profound effects on development; (2) how such effects might vary among siblings; and (3) how they can be transmitted nongenomically over multiple generations. In particular, the research in these areas indicates that behavioral interactions in the maternal-offspring relationship can significantly influence the neuroendocrine and behavioral development and adaptiveness of individuals.
