Background: This study evaluated continuity and change in maternal-child hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis attunement in early childhood. Participants were drawn from a prospective study of 1,292 mother-child dyads, which were racially diverse, predominantly low-income, and non-urban.
Background: This study investigated whether the interaction between hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) activity and autonomic nervous system (ANS) arousal moderated the link between harsh discipline and behavior problems.
Background: This study examined the development of baseline autonomic nervous system (ANS) and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) physiological activity from [Read more…]
Background: A new study of a small group of workers at industrial hog farms in North Carolina has found that they continued to carry antibiotic-resistant bacteria over several days, raising new questions for public health officials struggling to contain the spread of such pathogens.
Background: This study examined how marital conflict and parent-child relationship quality moderate individual differences in adolescents’ adrenocortical and autonomic nervous system (ANS) responses to social evaluative threat. Saliva samples (later assayed for cortisol and alpha-amylase, sAA) were collected from 153 youth (52% female; ages 10-17 years) before and after, and cardiovascular activity was….
Welcome to the University of California Institute for Interdisciplinary Salivary Bioscience Research at UC Irvine.
Our laboratories are being constructed and renovated, we are busy hiring and training staff, transitioning faculty affiliates, readying faculty searches, moving and upgrading our equipment, and building our website.
During this transitional period, we will continue to provide assay testing services, work with PIs on proposals and resubmissions, and look forward to talking with you about your research needs and plans.
IISBR’s facilities will be fully functional by May 15th, 2016 and at that time we will resume normal operations, offer expanded range of testing service center activities, and training workshops.
If you have questions about Spit Camp, testing, sending samples, proposals or resubmissions, please feel free to contact Kelly Henning at IISBR@uci.edu, or me at Dgrange@uci.edu or 814-933-7376 (cell).
Thank you again for the opportunity to support your Salivary Bioscience Research.
The mission of the Institute for Interdisciplinary Salivary Bioscience Research (IISBR) (“the Institute”) at UCI is to push the cutting edge of knowledge related to discovery and application of oral fluid as a research and diagnostic specimen.
