Projects

Project Touch

  • PI: Doug Teti, PhD
  • The overarching aim of this study is to assess the effects of a program of mother-delivered, cue-based infant massage on stress reactivity in the mother-infant dyad, and on other measures of mother-infant functioning.

      
Evaluation of Stress-Arousal in Newborn Infants Using Skin Conductance

  • PI: Kim Kopenhaver Haidet, PhD
  • This project tests how skin conductance in preterm infants provides information about arousal, stress and pain in the NICU.

      
Biobehavioral Assessment of Stress in Newborn Infants

  • PI: Kim Kopenhaver Haidet, PhD
  • This project compares multiple methods of evaluation of stress and pain in the newborn infant including heart rate variability, stress hormone measurements, biobehavioral observation, and skin conductance.
