Emotion Regulation and Mother-Infant Synchrony
The aim of this study is to better understand emotion regulation in infants by measuring brain, behavior, and mother-infant relational mechanisms. We plan to collect simultaneous brain activation in mothers and infants while they engage in a face-to-face interaction. We will then test associations between individual brain activation, mother-infant brain synchrony, and infant emotion regulation behaviors.
Participants complete questionnaires online, then come in for 1 in-person visit. Mother and baby complete a play and a neutral task while fNIRS is collected from them simultaneously.
