Dawson, Geraldine; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v33 n4 p650-56 Jul 1997
Examined electrical brain activity during negative and positive emotion expression in infants of depressed and nondepressed mothers. Found that, compared with infants of nondepressed mothers, infants of depressed mothers exhibited increased EEG activation in the frontal but not parietal region when expressing negative emotions. There were no reliable differences in brain activation during positive or neutral emotion expression. (Author/KB)
