来自Trends in Cognitive Sciences的综述:On Cuteness: Unlocking the Parental Brain and Beyond,描述了现代研究如何看待婴儿萌的作用。要点有:

The parent–infant relation is fundamental to infant survival and development.

Cuteness has emerged as an important factor for attracting caregiver attention and affection.

Cuteness is not limited to visual infant features, but is also found in positive sounds and smells.

Neuroimaging has started to identify how survival-related infant-positive and negative stimuli elicit core affective brain activity through fast attentional biasing and slow appraisal processes.

Beyond caregiving, cuteness has a key role in facilitating social relations, pleasure, and well-being, as well as increasing empathy and compassion.

【萌是一种自我保护】对于婴儿来说,可爱是保证生存和成长的保护机制,激发了家长的保护欲望。而除了长得萌,研究者指出,“萌”还包括婴儿的声音和味道。行为和神经影像研究指出可爱与家长的本能行为、照顾、保护和复杂情绪有关。婴儿的可爱,可以刺激家长的照顾行为,从而帮助婴儿成长发育,而这些照顾行为不仅是本能反应而是长期、有计划的亲社会行为。简单说,卖萌和被卖萌影响都是是人类生存的基本反应。
