The study, run as a joint international research group of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Osnabruck University in Germany, studies the comparison of Israeli born and Former Soviet Union born fathers of young infants and the emerging subjectivity of mothers and the development of early mother-infant relationships among Israeli born and Former Soviet Union born mothers of young infants. In addition, the team is studying parental investments from an evolutionary-developmental perspective, focusing on psychological investments that show up during dyadic interactions, among cross-cultural samples within Israel and Germany.
