Oxytocin produces more engaged fathers and more responsive infants | The Neuro Coach | Scoop.it
A large body of research has focused on the ability of oxytocin to facilitate social bonding in both marital and parenting relationships in human females.

Via Dimitris Agorastos
Ian Banyard's insight:

Perhaps one of the most important discoveries from brain science. More engaged fathers have a dramatic effect on healthy child development.

Could this have implications for autism spectrum disorders?  

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.

Men and women 'wired differently' | The Neuro Coach | Scoop.it
Ian Banyard's insight:

US researchers at the University of Pennsylvania scanned the brains of nearly 1,000 men, women, boys and girls and found striking differences. The same volunteers were asked to perform a series of cognitive tests, and the results appeared to support this notion. Women scored well on attention, word and face memory, and social cognition. Men performed better on spatial processing and sensori-motor speed.
