  • By observing the monkeys' ability to imitate the two gestures, the researchers sought to determine if oxytocin could promote social interaction through a gesture that was natural to them as well as through a gesture not part of their normal communication sequence.They tested the infants in the first week after birth.

  • To investigate this, the researchers attached recording electrodes to infants' feet at age 1 and measured their skin conductance at rest, in response to loud noises, and after encountering a scary remote-controlled robot. (healthcanal.com)
  • aggressive
  • Lower levels of sweat, as measured by skin conductance activity (SCA), have been linked with conduct disorder and aggressive behavior in children and adolescents. (healthcanal.com)
  • Psychological scientist Stephanie van Goozen of Cardiff University and colleagues wanted to know whether the link between low SCA and aggressive behaviors could be observed even as early as infancy. (healthcanal.com)
  • The results revealed that 1 year-old infants with lower SCA at rest and during the robot encounter were more physically and verbally aggressive at age 3. (healthcanal.com)
  • An alternate coping mechanism may be 'acting out' behavior as a redirection of repressed aggressive impulses in symbolic, rather than actual, ways. (city-data.com)

  • Three times a day, every other day, the caregivers would demonstrate the facial gestures in sequence to the infant monkeys, while the animals' responses were recorded on video. (medicalxpress.com)
  • The infant monkeys inhaled an aerosolized dose of oxytocin in one session, and a dose of saline in the other. (medicalxpress.com)
  • His lab conducted the chemical analyses of oxytocin and cortisol in the infant monkeys' saliva for this NIH study, quantifying how much of the hormone got into the animals' systems via inhalation. (umass.edu)
