CARTA: Birth to Grandmotherhood: Childrearing in Human Evolution – Katie Hinde: Breast Milk and Breastfeeding

5/2/2014; 21 minutes

Katie Hinde of Harvard University presents emerging research that addresses the magnitude, sources, and consequences of inter-individual variation of bioactive constituents in mother's milk. A better understanding of variation in milk composition, especially for milk constituents linked to infant cognition, neurodevelopment, behavior, and metabolism, enhances an evolutionary biological perspective of parent-offspring dynamics.
