Neurobiology of early infant behaviour: proceedings of an International Wallenberg Symposium at the Wenner-Gren Center, Stockholm, August September 1, [Curt von Euler; Hans Forssberg; Hugo Lagercrantz;]. Most of his research, which focuses on the neural mechanisms regulating maternal behavior, was conducted while he was a Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Neuroscience at Boston College. He is the author of a previous book, with Thomas Insel, The Neurobiology of Parental Behavior. This authored work will serve as the market’s most comprehensive reference on the neurobiology of social behavior. The volume will offer an introduction to neural systems and genetics/epigenetics, followed by detailed study of a wide range of behaviors – aggression, sex and sexual differentiation, mating, parenting, social attachments, monogamy, empathy, cooperation, and altruism. This transition occurs in most altricial animals, but our understanding of the behavioral neurobiology has mostly relied on the infant rat. The transformation from dependence to independence occurs over three weeks in pups and is accompanied by complex changes in responses to both natural and learned threats and the supporting neural by:

Premature babies are often developmentally behind full-term babies. If your baby was born two months early, then he or she might be two months behind a full-term baby. Your doctor will follow the developmental progress of your premature baby.

In rats, early attachment-related odors appear to retain value into adulthood, although the role of the odor in modifying behavior changes from that used during infancy (attachment to the mother) to that used in adulthood (reproduction).Cited by: Both quantity and quality of book reading in the toddler years predicted early literacy skills like name writing, beginning sound awareness, and early reading skills.
