The role of mother-child synchrony in the development of mother-child regulation

How emotion regulation, the ability to manage responses to high arousal events, unfolds over time is of special interest for understanding how and why typical, atypical and pathological outcomes can emerge. Emotion regulation origins very early in human life and develops thanks to the interactions between the immature infant and the caregiver.

In particular, dyadic synchrony, the mother-infant matching of individual cues, is considered the core promotor of it. The InSyncReg project aims to explore longitudinally infant emotion regulation in the first year of life as related to dyadic synchrony. We adopt a multidimensional point of view by considering behavioural, physiological and neural infant and mother simultaneously functioning during an interactive stressful situation.
