Mystery of baby’s brain

A baby's brain is a mystery whose secrets scientists are just beginning to unravel. The mystery begins in the womb. According to neuroscience, the first simple synaptic contacts of human brains start during the fifth month of pregnancy.

Architect of baby’s brain

During infancy, baby’s experiences result in building neural connections. Learning strengthens the connections in a neural network, and the environmental inputs through the sensory stimuli shape the architecture of the baby’s brain.

Can baby learn with immature brain?

Evidence showed that synaptic reorganizations also occur in the immature brain, where a neuron may lose or increase connections that it had initially established through certain stimuli.

Baby’s Brain

In THE SECRET LIFE OF THE BRAIN, a David Grubin Production, it describes that a baby’s brain is a mystery whose secrets scientists are just beginning to unravel. The mystery begins in the womb – only four weeks into gestation the first brain cells, the neurons, are already forming at an astonishing rate: 250,000 every minute.

The development of the nervous system does not stop at birth. The mechanism of synaptic reinforcement associated with neuronal activity continues to influence a baby’s synapses after birth. The environmental inputs through the sensory stimuli, such as learning to read, shape the architecture of the baby’s brain.

Baby's Immature Brain

Sufficient evidence has shown that synaptic reorganizations also occur in the immature brain, where a neuron may lose connections that it had initially established with other neurons, or receives increased connections with certain neurons multiply through...
