Presidential Symposium:

Fathers are parents too! Exploring the psychobiological context of early development

  • The Psychobiology of Father-Infant Relationships, Brenda L. Volling, PhD, Center for Human Growth & Development, University of Michigan, USA Read MoreThis talk will focus on recent findings linking the quality of early father-infant relationships to hormonal changes in father’s testosterone in response to stress, in addition to the role of a secure father-infant attachment relationships for infant stress reactivity.
  • Becoming Dads: How Comparative Perspectives Help Us Understand Men’s Hormones, Behavior, and Health as Fathers, Lee T. Gettler, PhD, Department of Anthropology, University of Notre Dame Read MoreHuman fathers shape their children’s well-being through a range of parenting behaviors. While common for humans, this is rare for mammals. This talk will shed light on how thinking about dads evolutionarily and across cultures helps us understand fathers’ roles, biology as parents, and health.
  • Imaging the neural response to predatory fear in prairie vole fathers, Jason R. Yee, Ph.D, Institute of Animal Husbandry and Welfare, Veterinary Medical University of Vienna Read MoreIn obligate biparental species mammalian fathers play a complementary role to the mother, and lacking nursing duties, are well-positioned to aid offspring survival by assessing and handling potential threats. This project examines the role of fatherhood in modulating the neural response to predatory life threat in socially monogamous and biparental prairie voles.
  • More than money: Fathers’ contributions to child development in the early years, Natasha J. Cabrera, PhD, Department of Human Development and Quantitative Methodology, University of Maryland Read MoreDr. Cabrera will talk about the research she has been doing using observational data of father-child dyads to understand the unique effect that fathers have on their children’s cognitive and social development in the early years

What did attendees like best about the 2018 ISDP Annual Meeting?

Integration of applied/clinical, animal and human basic science work. Also – the great focus on new scholars (trainees etc.).

Great symposium topics and well-attended poster sessions with drinks and canapes – this encourages discussion.

I always love to see the student/jr. investigators’ presentations. The society’s commitment to mentorship in a variety of formats is excellent!

The focus of the meeting was highly related to my research area. It also felt like a very welcoming environment for trainees. The wide array of topics and attendance of many leaders in the field.

balance in presentations between human and animal work. the selection of talks was very thoughtful.

High quality presentations that were truly psychobiology in that the research included aspects of both behaviour and biology (brain, cortisol, physiology).
