Impact of oxytocin reactivity on infant social gaze at four months

Isabelle Müller
2015 unpublished
Therefore, it is investigated whether oxytocin has a moderating impact on infant social gaze and, therefore, may influence the healthy development of the child.  ...  In particular, an increase in infant oxytocin predicted a better social adjustment of infants.  ...  Studies with mammals display plenty of evidence that variations in maternal care are predicted by levels of oxytocin and the number of oxytocin receptors in relevant neural regions (Champagne et al.,  ...
