Evolution of neuroendocrine mechanisms linking attachment and life history: The social neuroendocrinology of middle childhood

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (1):27-28 (2009)
An extended period of childhood and juvenility is a distinctive aspect of human life history. This stage appears to be important for learning cultural, social, and ecological skills that help prepare the child for the adult socio-competitive environment. The unusual pattern of adrenarche in humans (and chimpanzees) may facilitate adaptive modification of the neurobiological mechanisms that underpin reproductive strategies. Longitudinal monitoring of DHEA/S in naturalistic context could provide important new insights into these aspects of child development
