The disruption of mother-infant interactions can have life-long detrimental consequences for offspring and mothers. This topic of Frontiers will focus on maternal-infant interactions including factors that may affect or alter infant or child development and maternal response capability in clinical and preclinical (animal) populations. Articles may highlight topics such as drug abuse, maternal neglect, altered reward systems, stress, biological and neural system development, child and infant behavioral development, genetics/epigenetics and intergenerational studies. Submissions can include research methods papers, reviews, original research articles, techniques and opinion articles that address the topics of interest. This Research Topic will highlight translational research including common measures and results found in both animal and human studies. Please contact one of the Editors for submission proposals or for additional information.


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
