More than food: how hormones in mother’s milk organize infant behavior

Dr. Katie Hinde

Associate Professor, Arizona State University

Friday, January 19th, 12:10 pm – LOCATION TO BE DETERMINED
Coffee and cookies will be available

"Dr. Hinde’s research focuses on how mother’s milk contributes to infant development and behavior in socially complex taxa, particularly humans and monkeys. This includes not only provision of energy and materials for growth, but also milk constituents that shape immunological, neurobiological, and behavior development. She investigates how variation in mother’s milk and behavioral care influences infant outcomes from post-natal life and into adulthood, and subsequent generations.” – The Evolution Institute
