It is well known that babies stop crying and calm down when they are picked up and carried around. A similar behavioral change can be found in many other mammalian young such as lion cubs and mouse pups. Recent comparative analyses revealed that both human infants and mouse pups showed the same behavioral and physiological changes during calming response induced by carrying. This study is focusing on the calming response in humans and mice to understand the neural mechanism and the algorithms. The data obtained here will contribute to development of a device for childcare support.
