Pictures of preterm infants elicit increased affective responses and reduced reward-motivation or perspective taking in the maternal brain

Description: We examined mothers’ (N=22, of whom 17 had no direct experience with preterm birth) neural responses to pictures of preterm and full-term infants using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). We also explored whether neural responses to preterm and full-term infants correlated with mothers’ self-reported tendencies to be nurturing and protective with children, and with mothers’ ratings of affection or aversion towards pictures of preterm infants.
