  • NEW SCANNING TECHNIQUE REVEALS BABIES' BRAINS GROW QUICKEST RIGHT AFTER BIRTH

 

 

 

ACCORDING TO A STUDY IN JAMMA NEUROLOGY, HUMAN BRAINS GROW QUICKEST IN THE FIRST THREE MONTHS OF LIFE AND REACH HALF THEIR ADULT SIZE.  AREAS ASSOCIATED WITH MOVEMENT DEVELOPED FASTEST WHILE THOSE ASSOCIATED WITH MEMORY GREW AT A SLOWER RATE.

RESEARCHERS ARE HOPING THAT THIS DATA MAY EVENTUALLY HELP THEM IN IDENTIFYING DEVELOPMENTAL DISORDERS SUCH AS AUTISM.

THIS STUDY WAS CONDUCTED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA WHERE THE BRAINS OF 87 HEALTHY BABIES WERE SCANNED FROM BIRTH TO THREE MONTHS.  THE BRAINS GREW FASTED IMMEDIATELY AFTER BIRTH WITH A 1% GROWTH RATE PER DAY WHICH SLOWED TO .04% AT THE END OF 90 DAYS.
