Neural and Affective Responses to Prolonged Eye Contact with One's Own Adolescent Child and Unfamiliar Others

Description: This dataset contains data on a task in which parents of adolescents performed the eye contact task. The goal of this specific study was to examine the neural and psychological correlates of making eye contact with one’s own child and testing the uniqueness of these patterns when comparing them to eye contact with an unfamiliar child, an unfamiliar adult. While in the scanner, parents of adolescent children (aged between 12-18 years) were presented with prolonged (16-38 s) videos of their own child, an unfamiliar child, an unfamiliar adult and themselves (i.e., targets) facing the camera with a direct or an averted gaze (i.e., gaze direction). We measured BOLD-responses and tracked parents’ eye movements during the task and asked them to report on their mood and feelings of connectedness with the targets after each video. Parents were instructed to make eye contact with the person in the videos.
