Salivary DHEA-S, Cortisol show emotional & neuroendocrine response in relation to Telomere Length

Telomere Length and Procedural Justice Predict Stress Reactivity Responses to Unfair Outcomes in African Americans. Author: Lucas T, et al. (2017), Psychoneuroendocrinology Highlights TL predicts how psychosocial factors influence acute stress responses. Stress resiliency reflects telomere and procedural justice congruence. Considering TL as a predictor can advance understanding of racial health disparities. View Abstract Keywords: […]

Stress associated with higher salivary CRP levels in infants

Association between early life adversity and inflammation during infancy. Author: David J, et al. (2017), Dev Psychobiol. Early life adversity is associated with adult elevations of inflammatory markers such as circulating levels of C-reactive protein (CRP). Few studies have measured inflammation or its association with psychosocial stress during infancy. Existing evidence suggests that early adversity […]

5-HTTLPR variation may influence the impact of early adversity on HPA-axis regulation

Individual Differences in Early Adolescents’ Latent Trait Cortisol: Interaction of Early Adversity and 5-HTTLPR. Author: Chen FR, et al. (2017), Biol Psychol. The present study aimed to examine the interaction of 5-HTTLPR and early adversity on trait-like levels of cortisol. A community sample of 117 early adolescent girls (M age=12.39years) provided DNA samples for 5-HTTLPR […]

Effects of prematurity, cumulative medical risk, and proximal and distal social forces on HPA axis

Long-Term Effects of Prematurity, Cumulative Medical Risk, and Proximal and Distal Social Forces on Individual Differences in Diurnal Cortisol at Young Adulthood. Author: Winchester SB, et al. (2017), Biological Research for Nursing This study examined the effects of prematurity, cumulative medical risk, and proximal and distal social forces on individual differences in the activity of […]

New Study Confirms How to Achieve High-Quality Salivary Cortisol Data for Your Research

(Oct 19, 2017) A recent study shows better assays and better labs are consistently producing better salivary bioscience study data. The research team analyzed salivary cortisol measurement error between established-qualified international academic-research laboratories using Salimetrics Assays. A new study published in BioMed Central Research Notes shows that using an established-qualified lab provides the best opportunity […]

Lower BMI and uric acid in Mexican-origin families with greater fear of deportation

Household fear of deportation in Mexican-origin families: Relation to body mass index percentiles and salivary uric acid Author: Martinez AD, et al. (2017), American Journal of Human Biology OBJECTIVE: Fear of deportation (FOD) is a prevalent concern among mixed-status families. Yet, our understanding of how FOD shapes human health and development is in its infancy. […]

Variations in DHEA-S associated with health and maturation during adrenal development

Adrenal maturation, nutritional status, and mucosal immunity in Bolivian youth. Author: Hodges-Simeon CR, et al. (2017), American Journal of Human Biology OBJECTIVES: Humans-and several other apes-exhibit a unique pattern of post-natal adrenal maturation; however, the causes and consequences of variation in adrenal development are not well understood. In this study, we examine developmental and age-related […]

Traumatic childhood injuries related to changes in stress reactivity

Altered Stress System Reactivity After Pediatric Injury: Relation with Post-Traumatic Stress Symptoms Author: Ewing-Cobbs, et al. (2017), Psychoneuroendocrinology Research Article Highlights; HPA and ANS stress systems were dysregulated after nonintentional pediatric injury. HPA and ANS activity and regulation varied with age at injury and type of injury. Cortisol reactivity to social stress was attenuated after […]

The role of testosterone and age in impatient decision-making in boys

Dissociable effects of age and testosterone on adolescent impatience Author: Laube C, et al. (2017), Psychoneuroendocrinology The onset of adolescence is associated with an increase in transgressive behaviours-from juvenile delinquency to substance use and unprotected sex-that are often attributed to increased impulsiveness. In the past, this increase was ascribed to “raging hormones”; more recently, to […]

Disorganized attachment in infants associated with elevated salivary CRP

Increased levels of inflammation among infants with disorganized histories of attachment Author: Measelle JR, et al. (2017), Behavioural Brain Research Early life adversity is associated with adult elevations of inflammatory markers such as circulating levels of C-reactive protein (CRP). Few studies have examined inflammation levels during infancy nor the associations between sources of adversity and […]
