-Descripcion:

As a research neuroscientist, Lise Eliot has made the study of the human brain her lifes work. But it wasnt until she was pregnant with her first child that she became intrigued with the study of brain development. She wanted to know precisely how the babys brain is formed, and when and how each sense, skill, and cognitive ability is developed. And just as important, she was interested in finding out how her role as a nurturer can affect this complex process. How much of her babys development is genetically ordained--and how much is determined by environment? Is there anything parents can do to make their babies brains work better--to help them become smarter, happier people? Drawing upon the exploding research in this field as well as the stories of real children, Whats Going On in There? is a lively and thought-provoking book that charts the brains development from conception through the critical first five years. In examining the many factors that play crucial roles in that process, Whats Going On in There? explores the evolution of the senses, motor skills, social and emotional behaviors, and mental functions such as attention, language, memory, reasoning, and intelligence. This remarkable book also discusses: how a babys brain is assembled from scratch the critical prenatal factors that shapebrain development how the birthing process itself affects the brain which forms of stimulation are most effective at promoting cognitive development how boys and girls brains develop differently how nutrition, stress, and other physical and social factors can permanently affect a childs brain Brilliantly blending cutting-edge science with a mothers wisdom and insight, Whats Going On in There? is an invaluable contribution to the nature versus nurture debate. Childrens development is determined both by the genes they are born with and the richness of their early environment. This timely and important book shows parents the innumerable ways in which they can actually help their children grow better brains. Review With impressive depth and clarity, Eliot...offers a comprehensive overview of current scientific knowledge about infant and early childhood brain development...Popular science at its best. -- Publishers Weekly, starred review From the Inside Flap As a research neuroscientist, Lise Eliot has made the study of the human brain her lifes work.
