Dampening of Adrenocortical Responses during Infancy: Normative Changes and Individual Differences.
Gunnar, Megan R.; And Others
Child Development, v67 n3 p877-89 Jun 1996
Examined changes in cortisol and behavioral responses in 83 infants. Found that salivary cortisol responses before and after inoculation were high at 2 months, decreased between 2 and 4 months, remained stable, then declined again between 6 and 15 months. Found some evidence that emergence of circadian rhythm in cortisol might be related to early decrease in cortisol response. (HTH)
