The brains of teenage girls with behavioural disorders are structurally different to those of their peers, researchers have found.

Could this have implications for autism spectrum disorders?  

Ian Banyard's curator insight, December 28, 2012 2:15 PM

Stewart-Marshall's curator insight, December 29, 2012 1:52 AM

The researchers found that after oxytocin administration, fathers’ salivary oxytocin rose dramatically, more than 10 fold, but moreover, similar increases were found in the infants’ oxytocin. In the oxytocin conditions, key parenting behavior, including father touch and social reciprocity, increased but infant social behavior, including social gaze and exploratory behavior, increased as well.
