Welcome to the Parental Attachment Lab directed by UnJa Hayes, PhD. We are interested in the influence of reproductive events on attachment between parent and offspring. Currently, we are investigating how obstetric experiences prepare mothers for their postpartum roles. This research is conducted using a translational approach that looks at pre- and postpartum behaviors of women and female prairie voles (Microtus ochrogaster).
Please note that I will be on leave (off-campus) during the 2011-12 academic year.
