Office of University Communications

How do boys communicate? ABC News is presenting a segment on 20/20 discussing the issue, using research conducted by University of Connecticut Communication Sciences Prof. Ross Buck, who holds a joint appointment in the Dep artment of Psychology.

Buck's research indicates that as boys get older, between the ages of 4 and 6 , they begin to hold in their feelings.

The segment is tentatively scheduled to air this Friday, June 5 at 10 p.m. The program is seen on WTNH (Channel 8) from New Haven and on WCVB (Channel 5) from Boston. Check local listings for your ABC affiliate station.
