Daniel Messinger, Jacquelyn Moffitt, et al. published a chapter (21) in Oxford Academic’s The Oxford Handbook of Emotional Development titled “Early Interaction: New Approaches.” The chapter focuses on new developments in behavior imaging, objective quantification of human action, and computational approaches to the study of early emotional interaction and development.
Advanced parental age is a well-replicated risk factor for autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a neurodevelopmental condition with a complex and not well-defined etiology. We sought to determine parental age associations with ASD-related outcomes in subjects at high familial risk for ASD.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder associated with different genetic etiologies. Prospective examination of familial-risk infants informs understanding of developmental trajectories preceding ASD diagnosis, potentially improving early detection.

Behavioral assessments remain the gold standard for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosis, and prospective analysis permits objective and longitudinal assessment for the earliest symptoms. Published estimates of sibling recurrence for ASD range from 6.9 to 19.5%.

Children with autism spectrum disorder exhibit significant difficulties with emotion regulation. Respiratory sinus arrhythmia is a biomarker for processes related to emotion regulation, with higher baseline rates linked to beneficial outcomes.
