Recent studies suggest that parental caregiving is associated with adaptive changes in neurocognitive responses to emotional cues and oxytocin function, possibly reflecting the increased need of parents to monitor infants' emotional states. In the current study, we investigated whether the

New classes of thia/oxa-azaspiro[3.4]octanes are synthesized through the implementation of robust and step-economic routes. The targeted spirocycles have been designed to act as novel, multifunctional, and structurally diverse modules for drug discovery. Furthermore, enantioselective approaches to the spirocycles are reported.
