Abstract

The aim of the present study was to examine gender-related differences in heart rate of human neonates controlled for their behavior. Previous studies could not find any difference in male and female fetuses and newborns, although this gender-dependent difference clearly exists in children and adults. The heart rate of 99 newborns (47 girls and 52 boys) was measured with simultaneous video recording of their behavior. Results proved that alert newborns showed the same difference as adults: boys had a significantly lower baseline heart rate than girls. This suggests that heart rate is gender-dependent from birth onward.
