Scientists around the world are gaining insight into how the human brain develops and this will improve knowledge on newborn babies’ brains.
As mentioned on Science Daily scans on newborn babies’ brains were able to be scanned for deeper insights and these scans were part of a project called, Developing Human Connectome Project.
This project is hoping to educate scientists about brain development during pregnancy and how that development changed after birth. The scans of babies’ brains are providing great insights to scientists and are helping them with their own data and research.
It’s important for new moms and dads to be aware of child brain development because this research could help scientists understand conditions such as autism and other pregnancy problems.
While this new technology and research isn’t promising to eliminate any conditions it is a step in the right direction to assure new parents that a team of scientists is working to understanding their new child and how they will develop.
