For Preterm Infants, Skin-to-Skin Contact Affects Hormone Levels – And May Promote Parental Engagement

Wolters Kluwer Health: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

For premature infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), skin-to-skin contact with parents influences levels of hormones related to mother-infant attachment (oxytocin) and stress (cortisol) – and may increase parents' level of engagement with their infants, reports a study in Advances in Neonatal Care, official journal of the National Association of Neonatal Nurses. The journal is published in the Lippincott portfolio by Wolters Kluwer.

Superflares From Young Red Dwarf Stars Imperil Planets

Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)

Violent outbursts of seething gas from young red dwarf stars may make conditions uninhabitable on the planets that orbit them. Scientists found that flares from the youngest red dwarfs they surveyed are much more energetic than when the stars are older. They also detected one of the most intense stellar flares ever observed in ultraviolet light — more energetic than the most powerful flare from our Sun ever recorded.
