Does Handedness for Prehension Predict Handedness for Role-Differentiated Bimanual Manipulation During Infancy? 2008 713 The clearly observable behaviors that identify infant hand-use preferences make the development of this sensorimotor form of lateralization a valuable model for evaluating the development of other forms of lateral asymmetries of function. The current...
Manipulation of the Pre- and Post-Weaning Social Environment and its Effects on Prepulse Inhibition of the Acoustic Startle Response in C57BL/6 2008 855 Pre-pulse inhibition (PPI) is a tool that may be used to identify how early life stress can result in a deficient adult nervous system (as represented by a deficit in sensorimotor gating). Since both animals and humans demonstrate a PPI, animal resea...
Potential postural constraints on the development of lateralized hand-use in infancy 2010 528 Lateralized hand-use is an easily observable sensorimotor skill that can be used as a model for the exploration of the development of differential functioning between the two cerebral hemispheres, or hemispheric lateralization. However, it has been a...

A re-evaluation of the effects of maternal care on offspring behavioral development 2011 552 Recent studies of early handling in inbred mice do not replicate results from previous work in rats. In addition, studies using extended periods of dam-offspring separation suffer from a lack of consistency in behavioral, physiological and neuroanato...
The influence of sex and handedness on the development of constructing skills during infancy 2013 107 Towards the end of their first year, infants are initially learning to construct objects. Construction, or merging multiple objects into a single, unifying structure, requires combining cognitive and sensorimotor abilities. Since infants with a hand ...
Development of handedness for role-differentiated bimanual manipulation of objects in relation to the development of hand-use preferences for acquisition during infancy 2014 75 Handedness development during infancy could be represented as a progressive expansion of a hand-use preference across a wider range of increasingly complex skills. The goal of the present study was to explore the development of role-differentiated bi...
Some consequences for social behavior of perinatal asphyxia and c-section delivery of full term male rats 2014 31 The process of birth (parturition) has a critical impact on normal human development. Any deviations from the typical parturition process are defined clinically as birth complications, and have been linked to the development of neurological deficits....
