The Effects of Morning Naps, Car Trips, and Maternal Separation on Adrenocortical Activity in Human Infants.
Larson, Mary C.; And Others
Child Development, v62 n2 p362-72 Apr 1991
Three studies examined adrenocortical activity in infants. Morning naps were associated with decreases in salivary cortisol. Riding for 40 minutes in a car lowered salivary cortisol concentrations. Thirty minutes of maternal separation in the laboratory resulted in higher salivary cortisol concentrations than did 30 minutes of play with the mother present. (BC)
