Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Development of the characteristics of social phobia often requires a diathesis in the form of a temperamental bias. A behavioral profile marked by vigorous motor activity and crying to unfamiliar stimuli at 4 months of age - called high reactivity- is characteristic of about 20% of healthy, Caucasian infants. This pattern predicts shy behavior in preschool children and symptoms of social anxiety at age 7, and, at age 11, a subdued personality and biological features that are consonant with a hypothesis of amygdalar excitability. The biological variables that best characterize the children who had been high-reactive infants are right-hemisphere activity in the electroencephalogram (EEC), a larger evoked potential from the inferior colliculus, higher sympathetic tone in the cardiovascular system, and larger event-related potentials to discrepant stimuli. About a quarter of 11-year-olds who had been high reactives displayed behavioral and biological characteristics that are in theoretical accord with the hypothesis of amygdalar excitability, while only 1 of 20 displayed a profile characterized by features in opposition to their temperament. The evidence points to a modest temperamental contribution to the development of symptoms currently regarded as diagnostic of social phobia.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Numerous cases of children reporting memories of previous lives have previously been described. Most have come from cultures with a predominant belief in reincarnation, but the current study involved the investigation and psychological study of 15 cases from the United States. Of those, 11 reported memories of the lives of strangers, while 3 described the lives of deceased grandparents and one the life of a greatgrandparent. Most of the parents reported that they had neutral or negative feelings about reincarnation before the cases developed, and only three described a significant belief in reincarnation prior to their children’s statements. With each case, the parents and the child, aged 3-6 years, were interviewed,
and a number of psychological test instruments were administered, including the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale: 4th edition, the Survey Form of the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales, the Achenbach Child Behavior Checklist, the Child Dissociative Checklist, the Children’s Apperception Test, and the Family Questionnaire. The Children’s Apperception Test is a projective test used to assess general personality functioning, and the Family Questionnaire measures family functioning and, in particular, the dimensions of “Organization-control” and “Cohesion vs. Conflict” in families. On the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale, the children’s composite scores were significantly above average, with verbal reasoning and abstract/ visual reasoning in the above average range and quantitative reasoning in the superior range. On the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales, the children scored significantly above average in daily living skills, motor skills, and on the overall composite score. The Child Behavior Checklist averages were all in the normal range, well below the scores indicating
clinically significant problems in behavior. Most of the children obtained low scores on the Child Dissociative Checklist, indicating few symptoms of dissociation. The Children’s Apperception Test results showed no
unusual themes, and the families did not show any distinct patterns of functioning on the Family Questionnaire. In conclusion, these findings indicate that American children who report past-life memories are intelligent, and their reports do not appear to arise from psychopathology.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The study was focused on functional brain abnormalities associated with autism in 3-8 years-old boys . EEG was recorded 1) under controlled condition of sustained visual attention and 2) during sequential presentation of short novel visual stimuli in two independent samples of boys with autism (BWA) from Moscow (N=21) and Gothenburg (N=23) and a corresponding number of age-matched typically developing boys. EEG spectral power (SP), SP interhemispheric asymmetry, inter-regional coherence within delta, theta, alpha, beta and gamma bands and stimulus-induced EEG alpha oscillatory response were analyzed. The main distinctive features of ongoing EEG in BWA of both samples were the excess of high frequency activity (beta and gamma) and atypical hemispheric asymmetry of slower (delta, theta and alpha) EEG oscillations. The increased amount of fast brain oscillations in EEG of BWA correlated with the degree of developmental delay and may reflect genetically mediated abnormalities of GABA mediator system found in autism. Atypical leftward broadband EEG asymmetry in BWA with a maximum effect over the mid-temporal regions was associated with decreased coherence within the theta band at mid-temporal regions of right hemisphere. Alpha blocking response to novel visual stimuli in BWA was abnormally reduced at higher-order visual areas of right hemisphere. These findings point to a decreased capacity of right hemispheric neural circuits to generate EEG rhythms and may indicate altered regional specialization as well as altered information processing in autism. The concurrent lack of normal leftward asymmetry of mu rhythm suggests that abnormalities in EEG lateralization in autism are regionally/functionally specific.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
We examined the hypothesis of lower-level processing abnormalities related to perceptual grouping in boys with autism aged 3-6 years. We investigated event-related potentials response to visual elements that either formed perceptually coherent illusory contour or were arranged in a noncoherent way. The results showed that in healthy boys the illusory contour as compared with control stimulus elicited enhanced negativity of N1 peak (C effect), which has been previously found in adults. Autistic boys demonstrated the reliable inverted illusory contour effect, that is, more positive N1 amplitude to illusory contour. We hypothesized that boys with autism were sensitive to difference between illusory contour and control figures basing on collinearity processing mechanisms implemented in neural circuitry of primary visual cortex.

Excess of high frequency electroencephalogram oscillations in boys with autism
Publication year: 2007

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0006322307000145
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND:
An elevated excitation/inhibition ratio has been suggested as one mechanism underpinning autism. An imbalance between cortical excitation and inhibition may manifest itself in electroencephalogram (EEG) abnormalities in the high frequency range. The aim of this study was to investigate whether beta and gamma range EEG abnormalities are characteristic for young boys with autism (BWA).
METOHDS:
EEG was recorded during sustained visual attention in two independent samples of BWA from Moscow and Gothenburg, aged 3 to 8 years, and in age matched typically developing boys (TDB). High frequency EEG spectral power was analyzed.
RESULTS:
In both samples, BWA demonstrated a pathological increase of gamma (24.4–44.0 Hz) activity at the electrode locations distant from the sources of myogenic artefacts. In both samples, the amount of gamma activity correlated positively with degree of developmental delay in BWA.
CONCLUSIONS:
The excess of high frequency oscillations may reflect imbalance in the excitation–inhibition homeostasis in the cortex. Given the important role of high frequency EEG rhythms for perceptual and cognitive processes, early and probably genetically determined abnormalities in the neuronal mechanisms generating high frequency EEG rhythms may contribute to development of the disorder. Further studies are needed to investigate the specificity of the findings for autism.

Abnormal EEG lateralization in boys with autism

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVE:
Functional brain abnormalities associated with autism in 3–8-year-old boys were studied with EEG recorded under controlled experimental condition of sustained visual attention and behavioral stillness.
MMETHODS:
EEG was recorded in two independent samples of boys with autism (BWA) from Moscow (N = 21) and Gothenburg (N = 23) and a corresponding number of age-matched typically developing boys (TDB). EEG spectral power (SP) and SP interhemispheric asymmetry within delta, theta and alpha bands were analyzed.
RESULTS:
BWA comprised a non-homogeneous group in relation to theta and alpha SP. When four outliers were excluded the only between-group difference in absolute SP was a higher amount of prefrontal delta in BWA. BWA of both samples demonstrated atypical leftward broadband EEG asymmetry with a maximum effect over the mid-temporal regions. Concurrently, the normal leftward asymmetry of mu rhythm was absent in BWA.
CONCLUSIONS:
The abnormal broadband EEG asymmetry in autism may point to a diminished capacity of right temporal cortex to generate EEG rhythms. The concurrent lack of normal leftward asymmetry of mu rhythm suggests that abnormalities in EEG lateralization in autism may be regionally/functionally specific.
SIGNIFICANCE:
The data provide evidence for abnormal functional brain lateralization in autism.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
We examined the neural basis for social exclusion with a computer-based ball-tossing game called Cyberball to elicit social distress. Our ERP version of Cyberball documents its feasibility for studying social exclusion events in real time among adults and children. We examined the neural basis of childhood social exclusion with a dense-array EEG and extended the paradigm to a personally meaningful peer relationship.
AIMS OF THE STUDY
1) Explore the neural correlates of social exclusion of a child by two hypothetical peers; 2) Examine the neural correlates of social exclusion when one player is a childhood friend.
RESULTS
Study 1 found that social exclusion elicits a more negative frontal slow wave mainly reflected in theta oscillations. Greater frontal slow wave and theta power (400-800 ms) predict greater distress. Neural source modeling for rejection events was localized to the subgenual cortex, ventral anterior cingulate cortex, and insula. Study 2 found showed that stranger rejection was associated with larger P2 and positive slow wave ERP responses compared to exclusion by a best friend. Psychological distress prior to exclusion differentially moderated the effects of friend and stranger exclusion. Children with greater psychological distress were observed to have larger neural responses (larger P2 and slow wave) to exclusion by a stranger compared to exclusion by a friend. Psychological distress within the dyad differentially predicted the P2 and slow wave response.
CONCLUSIONS
Slow wave theta power for rejection events may be a neural signature of social exclusion by strangers. Familiarity changes the nature of Cyberball, engaging greater monitoring of a stranger among youth with greater distress.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Objectives: Across two studies we explored the neural correlates of social exclusion during a ball
toss game between a child and two hypothetical peers and when social exclusion involved a
childhood friend.
Methods: Event-related potentials (ERPs) were assessed during a computer-simulated ball-toss
game, Cyberball. This game simulated equal throws among players “fair play” and then a social
exclusion experience, when the child subject was left out of the game. This occurred between a
child 8-12 yrs. and two fictitious peers (Study 1), or between a child subject, a close childhood
friend and a fictitious peer (Study 2). Hurt feelings were assessed with an ostracism distress
measure in both studies. Study 2 also incorporated a new scale, the Friendship Distress
Questionnaire (FDQ).
Results: In Study 1, ERPs revealed that rejection events are perceived rapidly, evident in a
posterior ERP peaking at 420 ms, consistent with a larger P3 effect for rejection events. Condition
differences for rejection versus “not my turn” events were evident for slow-wave activity (500-900
ms) in the medial frontal cortical region. Distress from the rejection experience predicted a more
negative frontal slow wave. Source modeling suggested that slow wave neural activity for rejection
events originated from subgenual cortex, ventral anterior cingulate cortex and insula. Study 2
revealed that the traditional ostracism measure did not predict neural response among children
who were best friends. Instead distress assessed by the FDQ predicted a frontal slow wave neural
response among children who were excluded by their best friend.
Conclusions: The detection of a social exclusion event appears in less than ½ second. Cortical slow
wave activity predicts degree of felt exclusion. When exclusion emerges from a friendship, themes
assessed such as breach of trust and unfairness predicted cortical slow wave activity, whereas
global distress did not. This outcome suggests that different processes may be engaged when
social exclusion involves a close friend.

High motion coherence thresholds in children with autism

URL: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11902604
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND: We assessed motion processing in a group of high functioning children with autism and a group of typically developing children, using a coherent motion detection task.
METHOD: Twenty-five children with autism (mean age 11 years, 8 months) and 22 typically developing children matched for non-verbal mental ability and chronological age were required to detect the direction of moving dots in a random dot kinematogram.
RESULTS: The group of children with autism showed significantly higher motion coherence thresholds than the typically developing children (i.e., they showed an impaired ability to detect coherent motion).
CONCLUSIONS: This finding suggests that some individuals with autism may show impairments in low-level visual processing--specifically in the magnocellular visual pathway. The findings are discussed in terms of implications for higher-level cognitive theories of autism, and the suggestion is made that more work needs to be carried out to further investigate low-level visual processing in autism.

Diverse physical growth trajectories in institutionalized Portuguese children below age 3: Relation to child, family, and institutional factors
Publication year: 2013

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23262223
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVE:
To identify and analyze diverse longitudinal trajectories of physical growth of institutionalized children and their relation to child, family, and institutional factors.
METHODS:
49 institutionalized children were studied for 9 months after admission. Weight, height, and head circumference were measured on 4 occasions, beginning at admission. Data were analyzed using latent class analysis, yielding diverse patterns of growth for each feature, and relations with child characteristics, early family risk factors, and institutional relational care were investigated.
RESULTS:
For each growth feature, 4 classes emerged: "Persistently Low," "Improving," "Deteriorating," and "Persistently High." Younger age at admission was a risk factor for impaired physical growth across all domains. Physical characteristics at birth were associated with trajectories across all domains. Lower prenatal risk and better institutional relational care were associated with Improving weight over time.
CONCLUSIONS:
Discussion highlights the role of children's physical features at birth, prenatal risk, and caregiver's cooperation with the child in explaining differential trajectories.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
We aimed to characterize sleep and to test the frontal dysfunction hypothesis of nightmares, as well as to bridge the relationship between the ontogeny of frontal-executive and emotion regulation functions with age-related peculiarities of dreams and nightmares. Nightmare sufferers (NS) were characterized by performance decreases in several executive tasks (Emotional Go/NoGo, Emotional Stroop, Verbal Fluency). Alterations in the sleep architecture (decreases: sleep efficiency, slow wave sleep; increases: wakefulness, arousals, REM sleep), microstructure (increases in A2-microarousals of the cyclic alternating pattern), and qEEG (increased REM sleep 10–14 Hz power and synchronization) were paralleled by a more pronounced first-night effect of NS. Children are more accomplished dreamers with dream narratives closer to adult dream reports than authors of previous laboratory findings described. 4–8 years old children were characterized by a positive correlation of dream report length with slow wave sleep and with performance in the Emotional Stroop test. Negative correlation between the developmental level of executive functioning and dream recall frequency was also established. Our results suggest that NS are characterized by impairments in executive tasks involving the suppression of task-irrelevant semantic representations. Moreover, nightmare-related alterations in sleep architecture and microstructure are characterized by wake-like intrusions disturbing the neurocognitive function of sleep, as well as by emotion-related increases in REM propensity. Children’s dreams should be collected by novel methods, involving their parents. Children’s dreams depend on the maturation of emotion regulation and executive functions.

Social exclusion modulates event-related frontal theta and tracks ostracism distress in children
Publication year: 2015

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1053811915004759
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Social exclusion is a potent elicitor of distress. Previous studies have shown that medial frontal theta oscillations are modulated by the experience of social exclusion. Using the Cyberball paradigm, we examined event-related dynamics of theta power in the EEG at medial frontal sites while children aged 8–12 years were exposed to conditions of fair play and social exclusion. Using an event-related design, we found that medial frontal theta oscillations (4–8 Hz) increase during both early (i.e., 200–400 ms) and late (i.e., 400–800 ms) processing of rejection events during social exclusion relative to perceptually identical “not my turn” events during inclusion. Importantly, we show that only for the later time window (400–800 ms) slow-wave theta power tracks self-reported ostracism distress. Specifically, greater theta power at medial frontal sites to “rejection” events predicted higher levels of ostracism distress. Alpha and beta oscillations for rejection events were unrelated to ostracism distress at either 200–400 ms or 400–800 ms time windows. Our findings extend previous studies by showing that medial frontal theta oscillations for rejection events are a neural signature of social exclusion, linked to experienced distress in middle childhood.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Introduction: There is a lack of empirical studies on developmental and mental health problems in infants and toddlers up to 18 months of age. Although research has identified several of the risk factors for these problems, there is no information regarding their developmental pathways.
State of the Art: In a relatively recent epidemiological study with 18 month-old children, 16-18% were diagnosed with a
mental health problem. In other studies, similar rates have been reported (12.1% and 16.2%). A recent study showed that 25% of the children with behavioral problems at 18 months of age showed problems 6 years later. In Portugal, the National Commission for the Protection of Child and Youth at Risk (CNPCJ) 2009 report followed 67117 children at-risk. The causes were mainly associated with parental mental health problems, alcohol consumption and drug addiction. However, a major problem is that only a third of these children receives professional help before the age of 5.
New Perspectives: Gene-environment studies have reported that among children exposed to stressful life events, those with short allele of serotonin transporter promoter gene (5-HTT) were more prone to develop depression then those with long allele of 5-HTT genotype. Short allele variant of the 5-HTT has been also associated with the use of fewer problem-solving strategies to deal with stress.
Implications: The analysis of the interaction between environmental and genetic risk factors is extremely relevant to the
comprehension of developmental and mental problems.
Conclusions: Early detection and intervention on developmental and mental health problems at the primary care level is warranted to promote the well-being of children and families.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Introduction: The aim of this paper is to present a longitudinal study to detect early signs of developmental and mental health problems, namely among infants who were exposed to environmental risk factors. Gene-environment interaction on the vulnerability and resilience to developmental and mental health problems is the core of this study.
Method: We are studying 400 families from 28 weeks of gestation up to 18 months after childbirth. During the gestational period, sociodemographic and substance abuse information is collected. At 6 weeks postpartum data on perinatal background and parental mental health is collected. Salivary samples are collected from infants for 5-HTT genotype analysis. The infant's regulation of arousal, activity, affect and attention is assessed. At 6, 12 and 18 months postpartum several measures of infant development and temperament take place, as well as parental psychopathology and stress.
Results: We expect to provide data on families in which the parent's condition and life circumstances or the characteristics of the child threaten the social, emotional, behavioral and cognitive development of the child.
Conclusions: The detection of nature vs nurture factors involved on child development outcomes allow the conception of early intervention programs.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Many children suffer from headaches. Since stress may trigger headaches, effective techniques to cope with stress are needed. We investigated the effectiveness of two mind-body techniques, transcendental meditation (TM) or hypnotherapy (HT), and compared them with progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) exercises (active control group). Children (9-18 years) suffering from primary headaches more than two times per month received either TM (N?=?42), HT (N?=?45) or PMR (N?=?44) for 3 months. Primary outcomes were frequency of headaches and =?50% reduction in headaches at 3 and 9 months. Secondary outcomes were adequate relief, pain coping, anxiety and depressive symptoms, somatisation and safety of treatment. Groups were comparable at baseline. Headache frequency was significantly reduced in all groups from 18.9 days per month to 12.5 and 10.5 at respectively 3 and 9 months (p?<?0.001), with no significant differences between the groups. Clinically relevant headache reduction (=?50%) was observed in 41% and 47% of children at 3 and 9 months respectively, with no significant differences between the groups. No differences were observed in secondary outcome measures between the intervention groups. No adverse events were reported.Conclusion: All three techniques reduced primary headache in children and appeared to be safe.Trial registration: NTR 2955, 28 June 2011 ( www.trialregister.nl ).
What is Known: • Stress may be an important trigger for both tension type headache and migraine in children. • Good data are lacking on the effect of transcendental meditation, hypnotherapy or progressive muscle relaxation as possible stress-reducing therapies in children with primary headaches.
What is New: • Three non-pharmacological techniques, i.e., transcendental meditation, hypnotherapy and progressive muscle relaxation exercises, all result in a clinically significant reduction of headaches and use of pain medication. • No large differences between the three techniques were found, suggesting that children can choose either one of the three techniques based on personal preferences.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Sensitivity to rhythm is an important aspect of human development. However, despite growing research on developmental aspects of rhythm, the potential impact of gestational age on rhythm processing remains unexplored. We compared preterm and term children on rhythm perception in music under three conditions of stimulus complexity: rhythmical sequences in unpitched timbres (unpitched), in fixed pitch tones (constant pitch), or in tones of variable pitch (variable pitch contour). Twenty-one preterm children (9.89 ± 2.30 years; 10 girls) were individually matched in age and sex to term children (9.89 ± 2.34; 10 girls) and asked to judge whether the rhythm of a pair of sequences sounded same or different. In the unpitched condition, there were no between-group differences. However, term children performed significantly better than preterm children in the sequences with variable pitch contour (results on fixed pitch were intermediate). These results suggest that prematurity may impact on rhythm processing under more demanding conditions of stimulus complexity.

ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
Anecdotal reports suggest that PSI may be more apparent in young children, although there are few studies of age-related differences in PSI.
AIM OF THE STUDY
Our study investigated age-related differences in precognition and presentiment among children using a standardized laboratory test.
METHOD
Precognition and presentiment testing was performed for 120 children divided into three age groups, 3 to 6, 7 to 10, and 11 to 14 years of age. Each completed a computerized precognition task based on that distributed by Daryl Bem. Testing comprised 36 trials predicting the location of target images that elicted positive emotions or were non-emotional. Performance was determined as the percentage of correct predictions (hit rate).
RESULTS
All 120 participants, even the youngest, were able to complete the task as instructed. Comparisons of the three age group revealed significant differences in hit rate (F(2,117) = 3.11, p = .049), with the youngest performing best and the middle group worst (p = .01). Age-related differences were apparent for positive emotional images, but not for non-emotional images. Exploratory tests indicated that although performance was not better than chance in the full sample (N = 120), the young group did perform better than chance (p = .004) with a hit rate of 53.2%.
CONCLUSIONS
This pilot study demonstrated that computerized testing of precognition and presentiment is feasible in children across a broad age range. Results confirmed that age groups differed in performance, with the youngest group doing best. Further studies of age differences are warranted. A better understanding of PSI in children could be beneficial to both the fields of parapsychology and child development.
