'Neural Synchrony' Between Mother and Baby Improves Social Learning

Parent Interventions

'Neural Synchrony' between a baby and its mother helps the baby in understanding its social environment, according to a new research report presented at Cognitive Neuroscience Society meeting in San Francisco.

An experiment was conducted to find out how emotional responses of mother towards a new toy caused the baby to play or not play with the toy. Both the mother and baby were connected to wireless EEG (Electro Encephalogram) monitors to assess the brain activity. It was found that brain waves of both the mom and baby follow predictable wave patterns in such interactions.

Victoria Leong of University of Cambridge who conducted the study points out that the results have implications in classroom learning, treatment of developmental disorders and social bonding. How lack of brain synchronisation affects teaching and communication between parents and children have to be explored further, the researchers added.
