The June 2012 NICHD Research Perspectives—NICHD’s monthly podcast series— features discussions of a treatment that reduces the body temperatures of infants who experience oxygen deficiency at birth, the effectiveness of progesterone as a treatment for the infertility associated with polycystic ovary syndrome, and the influence that engaging the attention of young children with autism has on their language development.

Each month, NICHD Director Alan E. Guttmacher talks with NICHD scientists and program staff about findings from their areas of expertise.  The series provides a means for researchers to go beyond the descriptions in news releases, to discuss the implications of the research, what the findings may mean for patients and members of the public, as well as what direction future studies might take.

The June podcast is available at and the transcript at
