Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
While infant attachment has been largely studied, parental attachment is still relatively unknown, especially when referred to fathers. However, it is mainly recognised that parents’ emotional involvement with the newborn contributes to the quality of the interaction and the care they provide. The aim of this study was to study mother-to-infant and father-to-infant initial emotional involvement; namely, differences between mothers and fathers and changes in mother’s emotions toward the neonate within the first days after delivery. The Bonding Scale, an extended Portuguese version of the ‘New Mother-to-Infant Bonding Scale’, was administered during the first two days after childbirth to a sample of 315 mothers and 141 fathers (n = 456), at the Júlio Dinis Maternity Hospital (Portugal). Most mothers and fathers show positive emotions and only a few of them showed negative emotions toward the infant. Maternal and paternal emotional involvement toward the newborn tend to be similar; nevertheless, fathers show less fear and better emotional involvement with the neonate, while mothers are sadder and show more emotions not related to bonding. During the first days following delivery, emotions not related to bonding, such as fear, seem to decrease in mothers.

Mother-to-infant emotional involvement at birth
Publication year: 2009

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18317894
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Objectives - To study mother-to-infant emotional involvement at birth, namely factors (socio-demographics, previous life events, type of delivery, pain at childbirth, support from partner, infant characteristics, early experiences with the newborn, and mother's mood) that interfere with the mother's positive, negative and not clear emotions toward the newborn.
Methods - The Bonding Scale (an extended Portuguese version of the 'New Mother-to-Infant Bonding Scale') and the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale were administrated during the first after delivery days to 315 mothers recruited at Júlio Dinis Maternity Hospital (MJD, Porto, Portugal).
Results - A worse emotional involvement with the newborn was observed when the mother was unemployed, unmarried, had less than grade 9, previous obstetrical/psychological problems or was depressed, as well as when the infant was female, had neonatal problems or was admitted in the intensive care unit. Lower total bonding results were significantly predicted when the mother was depressed and had a lower educational level; being depressed, unemployed and single predicted more negative emotions toward the infant as well. No significant differences in the mother-to-infant emotional involvement were obtained for events related to childbirth, such as type of delivery, pain and partner support, or early experiences with the newborn; these events do not predict mother's bonding results either.
Conclusion - The study results support the need for screening and supporting depressed, unemployed and single mothers, in order to prevent bonding difficulties with the newborn at birth.

Envolvimento emocional inicial dos pais com o bebé

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Although child attachment toward the parents has been largely studied, we still have a lot to know about how parents attach to infants. Nevertheless, the literature has been highlighting for so long that the parents’ emotional involvement is a determinant factor in the quality of the interaction and the care that they provided to the child. This study investigates the parents’ initial emotional bonding toward the newborn, attending to 3 main objectives: (1) to describe parents’ emotional involvement with the infant in the first postpartum week, (2) to analyse differences in the initial emotional bonding, between mothers and fathers; 3) to evaluate changes in the mother’s emotional involvement with the infant during the first postpartum week. The Bonding Scale (Figueiredo, Marques, Costa, Pacheco, & Pais, 2004) was administrated to 150 mothers, 24 hours after the delivery, and to 315 mothers and 141 fathers (N=456), at 1 to 2 days postpartum (at the Júlio Dinis Maternity Hospital. Porto). The results show that in the week following the delivery, most mothers and fathers report: (1) high positive emotional involvement (71% and 73%, respectively); (2) at least one emotion not clearly related with bonding (76% and 70.9%, respectively); (3) no negative emotions toward the infant (although some negative emotional involvement is present in 21% of the mothers and 16.3% of the fathers). Results also show that 48 hours after delivery mother’s and father’s emotional involvement toward the newborn is not so different, but mothers feel significantly more sad, possessive and fearful, and in general have more emotions not clearly related with bonding as well as worse bonding than fathers. The results also show that mothers are significantly less fearful in the presence of the infant at day 2 than at day 1, and emotions not clearly related with bonding tend to decrease in the first following delivery days. We conclude that in the first week after childbirth, (1) most mothers and fathers have high positive involvement, at least one emotion not clearly related with bonding, low or absent negative emotional involvement with the infant. (2) Fathers have a better initial bonding with the newborn than mothers. (3) In a very short period of time (1 day) slightly positive changes in the quality of the mother’s emotions toward the child can be observed. We also conclude that studying the parents’ emotional involvement with the baby and considering the conditions that might benefit the mother’s and father’s emotional involvement, in the moments that follow childbirth, are very important issues.

Seeing it coming: infants' brain responses to looming danger

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19756463
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A fundamental property of most animals is the ability to see whether an object is approaching on a direct collision course and, if so, when it will collide. Using high-density electroencephalography in 5- to 11-month-old infants and a looming stimulus approaching under three different accelerations, we investigated how the young human nervous system extracts and processes information for impending collision. Here, we show that infants' looming related brain activity is characterised by theta oscillations. Source analyses reveal clear localised activity in the visual cortex. Analysing the temporal dynamics of the source waveform, we provide evidence that the temporal structure of different looming stimuli is sustained during processing in the more mature infant brain, providing infants with increasingly veridical time-to-collision information about looming danger as they grow older and become more mobile.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The main objective of this study was to identify physiological markers of the sensorial processing of the newborn and relation with behavioral measures. In order to accomplish this aim, we collected: a) EEG, physiological and neurobehavioral measures at 1-month-old; and 2) behavioral and cognitive measures at one-year old.
Results showed that when considering the visual and auditory evoked potentials, no statistically significant differences were found between the three intensities. However, when correlating the physiological data with the neurobehavioral assessment, we verified that higher ERP amplitudes (e.g. P100) were observed for higher stimuli intensities, which were further correlated with neurobehavioral domains that characterized more reactive infants. For the physiological measures, statistically significant differences were found in the Cardiac Frequency to visual stimuli, where higher frequencies were also observed for higher intensities. Moreover, these increased physiological reactivity was correlated with the neurobehavioral domain Autonomic System, suggesting that increased physiological response to higher intensity stimuli were observed in more reactive infants. With respect to auditory stimulus, we did not observe differences between intensities. Additionally, when Respiratory Frequency was analyzed, we did not observe differences between the three intensities for visual and auditory stimuli. Nevertheless, when correlating the physiological data with the neurobehavioral assessment, hyper-reactive domains were correlated with higher respiratory frequencies. These findings suggest that infants who presented more reactive neurobehavioral features tend to present a more reactive physiological pattern to external stimuli.

Visual event-related potentials in healthy infants
Publication year: 2012

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
INTRODUCTION:
A large amount of research in the developmental domain has focused its attention in the newborns’ behavioral analysis. More recently, electrophysiological measures studies, such as ERPs studies, have been used to extend our knowledge about these behavioral data by learning the cerebral processes for normal as well as aberrant development (Karrer, 1998). Indeed, visual event
-related potentials (VERPs) studies with infants, at an early stage, have been proposed to be important markers in early diagnosis of sensorial deprivation (Benavente, Tamargo, Tajada, Yuste & Oliván, 2005). Studies comparing healthy newborns and newborns with different pathological diagnosis (i.e., perinatal asphyxia or intraventricular hemorrhage) showed that the VERPs components were different, namely that healthy infants presented more early components, such as N1, P2 and N3 (Kraemer, Abrahamsson & Sjostrom, 1999; Toru & Watanabe, 2006). Therefore, the objective of the present study is to understand and identify the VERPs components to different intensity visual stimuli in healthy infants.
METHOD:
Sixty-one newborns were recruited, thirteen families came to the hospital and thirteen infants were assessed. All infants were full-term, with birth weights ranging from 2620 to 4270g and had normal Apgar scores. The data for one baby was lost due to technical problems. VERP data for twelve caucasian infants with ages ranging from 23 to 41 days were recorded. Study objectives and procedures were described to parents and informed consent was obtained. When they arrived, the newborn was placed in their mother’s lap and the researcher offered white flashes holding the lamp of a Grass PS33-Plus (Astro-Med Inc.) flash stimulator, positioned at 20 cm distance from the infant and directed towards their eyes. The stimulus was offered in three different intensities. Data was recorded using a QuickAmp amplifier linked to a 32 channels ActiCap and Vision Recorder 1.10 Software (Brain Products, Brainvision Inc.).
RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS:
All the infants showed visual evoked responses and isual ERPs components were identified. This knowledge can help professionals to make early diagnosis and adjust more direct and appropriate treatment plans for infants with sensorial processing difficulties.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This exploratory study examined mental development and the quality of socio-emotional functioning of 16 institutionalized children, aged from 3 to 6 years old, relating them with the quality of their caregivers’ attachment narratives. Griffiths Developmental Scales, Child Behavior Checklist, Attachment Script Representation and Attachment Q-Sort were used in the psychological assessment. Results showed that chidren’s developmental level was placed below normative data. Furthermore, data regarding externalizing and internalizing psychopathology symptoms were close to the clinical population. Nevertheless, and in contrast to our hypothesis, most children presented almost mormative attachments scores (secure base), but this was not related to the quality of attachement narratives presented by their caregivers. The implications of these findings are discussed in light of the impact of institutional deprivation in child development.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Clinicians and researchers have been documenting the deleterious effects of institutional rearing on multiple developmental domains of young children. Most of these studies were conducted in very deprived institutional settings. In Portugal there is a lack of empirical evidence about the developmental effects in children reared in institutions. The sample is composed by fifty children early deprived from parental care and placed in institutions from birth to 30 months. Two groups of children were assessed: children newly admitted at the institution (Group 1) and children that had been at the institution for at least 6 months (Group 2). The measures were: a) standard measures of weight, height, head circumference for physical growth; b) the Bayley Scales of Infant Development III for assessment of cognitive development; c) saliva samples for determination the cortisol levels; d) Ages & Stages Questionnnaires – SE for social-emotional development (Squires,Bricker & Twombly, 2002), and the Infant Characteristics Questionnaire (Bates, Freeland & Lounsbury,1979) to assess temperament. Physical growth and neuro-cognitive functioning differences will be examined between groups. In addition, intra-group variability in neuro-cognitive functioning and social emotional development will be explored within Group 2 as a function of the length of institutional rearing.

Pure Reasoning in 12-Month-Old Infants as Probabilistic Inference
Publication year: 2011
URL:
http://www.sciencemag.org/content/332/6033/1054.abstract
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Many organisms can predict future events from the statistics of past experience, but humans also excel at making predictions by pure reasoning: integrating multiple sources of information, guided by abstract knowledge, to form rational expectations about novel situations, never directly experienced. Here, we show that this reasoning is surprisingly rich, powerful, and coherent even in preverbal infants. When 12-month-old infants view complex displays of multiple moving objects, they form time-varying expectations about future events that are a systematic and rational function of several stimulus variables. Infants’ looking times are consistent with a Bayesian ideal observer embodying abstract principles of object motion. The model explains infants’ statistical expectations and classic qualitative findings about object cognition in younger babies, not originally viewed as probabilistic inferences.

Is dreaming merely a cognitive performance? Analysis of the content and narrative structure of children’s dreams
Publication year: 2012
URL:
http://www.cecog.eu/absbook_ducog2012.pdf
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Inspired mainly by the longitudinal studies of Foulkes the mainstream of developmental psychology considers dreaming a cognitive performance deriving it solely from children’s cognitive abilities. In contrast, the current neurocognitive approaches see the function of REM sleep and dreaming in the consolidation of
emotional memories and in affective regulation.
This study investigates the ontogeny of dreaming, evaluates the frequency, content and narrative structure of dreams together with the cognitive and affective development in children.
In our content analysis we followed the rules described by Foulkes, but the method of dream collection was fundamentally different: instead of interviews after awakening from sleep in the laboratory, over 6 weeks children would report their dreams at home to their pre-trained parents in the form of tape-recorded dream-diaries based on provided questionnaires.
The initial content analysis (n=12, age=4-8 years) revealed differences to earlier results: dreams are longer in every age group compared to the previous findings, selfrepresentation is more frequent (79%), movement (84%) and living emotions (43%) are common in the dream experience; furthermore the number of dream reports does not change significantly with age (one dream per week in all age groups).
The current study is a part of a bigger research project, which aims to widen our knowledge about this seldom investigated field of developmental studies and dream science - evaluating it in a new, emotional development-centered context and using different methodology.

Infant olfactory event-related potentials

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVE:
The aim of this study was to identify electrophysiological responses of around one-month-old infants when presented with olfactory stimuli. These stimuli were offered in three different intensities and we looked for the appearance of olfactory event-related potentials (OERP) for each stimuli intensity.
BACKGROUND:
Since the birth, the neonate is able to respond with specific behaviors to different stimuli that surround him. She may cry when facing an aversive stimulus, shows aversion facial expressions when presented with odors that were previously considered as unpleasant and, likewise, is able to crawl to follow the mother´s breast odor. Behavioral preference signals, such as head turning, when a pleasant olfactory stimuli is presented, can also be observed. These evidences can demonstrate that the olfactory function develops from the first years of life and that at birth this function is already operational, producing behavioral and psychophysiological responses in the newborn.
METHOD:
Sixty-one newborns were recruited at the Obstetric and Pediatric services of Woman’s, Children’s and Adolescent’s Department of Hospital Pedro Hispano, in Matosinhos, Portugal. From the total recruited, thirteen appeared in the hospital and thirteen circa one-month old infants participated in the study. OERP’s were registered with a total of 12 caucasian newborns (6 female, 6 male) because, due to technical issues in the registry, the data for one infant was lost. The infants aged between 23 to 41 days. All infants were full-term with birth weight between 2620g to 4270g and normal Apgar score. To elicit OERP, monomodal chemosensory nasal stimulation was performed using an Olfactometer OM2s (Burghart Instruments, Wedel, Germany). This was achieved by embedding chemical stimuli of 200 ms duration in a constantly flowing air stream (5 l/min) applied to the nasal mucosa by an enteral feeding tube inserted approximately 5mm into the nostril beyond the nasal valve area and fixed to the nose with Mefix adhesive. For the olfactory stimulation Phenyl Ethyl Alcohol Rose-like Odor was used (PEA, 10 30 and 50% v/v; Sigma, Deisenhofen, Germany), offered in three different sequences.
RESULTS:
At the present moment, the data analysis is still an ongoing process and because of that there are no results to present. But, being such an ambitious project and using methodologies that are quite new with such young infants we can, however, conclude that collecting the data using the procedures reported above is a doable process and that it is possible to offer the olfactory stimuli the way we did.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Individual differences in infant stress reactivity may have a lasting effect on development. The goal of this project was to explore individual differences in infants’ reactivity to a repeated standard stressor, the Face to Face Still Face (FFSF) in which periods of face-to-face play are alternated with periods in which the mother maintains a “poker” face and does not engage the infant. The play and FFSF were repeated until either the infant became distressed (crying for 30 seconds) or the infant completed three SF-Play repetitions. Two baseline salivary samples were followed by three post-distressed samples to allow tracking of response and recovery. This design resulted in two stress categories, infants who exhibited distress and did not complete the paradigm and infants who did complete the paradigm. There were no differences in salivary cortisol or sAA between the two groups. However, a positive relationship was found between baseline cortisol levels and the peak post-stress levels suggesting that the Law of Initial Values may not need to be considered when analysing salivary cortisol changes in infants. The findings also highlight the importance of considering baseline values in stress reactivity. A statistical trend showed that infants who dropped out had greater baseline cortisol and sAA levels. In conclusion, the findings question the use of salivary cortisol and salivary alpha-amylase as measures of social stress in early infancy. The results also suggest that we have yet to identify appropriate measures of individual differences in infants’ stress reactivity. The finding of a relation between cortisol baseline levels and reactivity suggests that there are indeed individual differences in cortisol functioning.
