Three month old babies hear emotion1st July 2011
Researchers believe that babies can respond to emotions in a human voice at an earlier age than previously thought.
Scans on 21 sleeping babies suggested the brain responded to the type of sounds being played and from those results the London-based team believe babies as young as three months can make a response. Researchers said it had previously been unclear when human brains developed the ability to process voices and emotions. Now they hope to learn the difference between the way autistic and non-autistic brains develop as a result.
