Learning the smell of fear: Mothers teach babies their own fears via odor, research finds (7/31/2014)

Babies can learn what to fear in the first days of life just by smelling the odor of their distressed mothers', new research suggests. And not just 'natural' fears: If a mother experienced something before pregnancy that made her fear something specific, her baby will quickly learn to fear it too -- through the odor she gives off when she feels fear. ...> Full Article


Preterm children's brains can catch up years later (7/31/2014)

Trying to get kids to eat healthier? Don't tell them veggies are good for them (7/27/2014)

At some point, most kids will hear that drinking milk helps make their bones strong or that fish is food for the brain. But do these messages foster the idea that if something is good for us, it must surely taste bad? According to a new study in the Journal of Consumer Research, when children hear about the benefits of healthy food, they're less likely to eat it. ...> Full Article


Stronger early reading skills predict higher intelligence later (7/26/2014)

A study of 1,890 identical twins has found that strong early reading skill might positively affect later intelligence. The twins, who are part of an ongoing longitudinal study in the United Kingdom, share all their genes as well as a home environment. Differences shown in intellectual ability came from experiences they didn't share. The twin with stronger early reading skills was found to have higher overall intellectual ability by age 7. ...> Full Article

Measuring nurture: Study shows how 'good mothering' hardwires infant brain (7/22/2014)

By carefully watching nearly a hundred hours of video showing mother rats protecting, warming, and feeding their young pups, and then matching up what they saw to real-time electrical readings from the pups' brains, researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center have found that the mother's presence and social interactions -- her nurturing role -- directly molds the early neural activity and growth of her offsprings' brain. ...> Full Article


Do daughters really cause divorce? Maybe not (7/21/2014)

Couples with daughters are somewhat more likely to divorce than couples with sons. But do daughters really cause divorce, as some scholars have claimed? Maybe not. New Duke research suggests a different potential explanation: the female survival advantage. Girls may be hardier than boys, even in the womb. And because they are more able to survive stressful pregnancies, more girl babies may be born into troubled marriages that are headed for divorce. ...> Full Article


How does working part-time versus working full-time affect breastfeeding goals? (7/20/2014)

While many women intend to breastfeed despite returning to work, a new study finds that mothers who plan to breastfeed for at least three months but return to work full-time are less likely to meet their breastfeeding goals. Conversely, there is no association between women who return to work part-time and failure to reach the breastfeeding goal of at least three months. ...> Full Article


My brother's keeper (7/19/2014)

While researchers have long known that brothers and sisters teach each other about the world, most of their observations about this have been made in a lab setting.

A 'magic moment' for unwed parents (7/14/2014)

If unwed parents are going to get married, the best window of opportunity for that union seems to be before the child turns 3, says a new study from Duke University. But these marriages are fragile, ending in divorce 38 percent of the time between biological parents and 54 percent of the time with a step-father. ...> Full Article


Pregnancies following egg donation associated with more than 3-fold higher risk of hypertension (7/13/2014)

With an ever-aging female patient population, egg donation is an increasingly common treatment in infertility. ESHRE's own annual reports on fertility treatments in Europe show a rise in egg donation cycles from 15,028 in 2007 to 24,517 in 2010. This proportion is still some way behind the USA, where egg donation now accounts for around 12 percent of all treatments. ...> Full Article

Young teens who receive sexts are 6 times more likely to report having had sex (7/10/2014)

A study provides new understanding of the relationship between 'sexting' and sexual behavior in early adolescence, contributing to the ongoing conversation about whether sexually explicit text messaging is a risk behavior or just a technologically enabled extension of normal teenage flirtation. The latest research found that among middle school students, those who reported receiving a sext were six times more likely to also report being sexually active. ...> Full Article
