The role of mother's voice on Baby Brains

Mother was always special and very big role in the growth and development of children. Mother's voice is very important even to activate the baby's brain had just been born.
It is revealed from the results of research conducted by researchers from the University of Montreal and Sainte-Justine University Hospital Research Centre.
To investigate this, the research team made the discovery after making electrical recordings in the brains of infants within 24 hours of birth. As a result, the brain signals revealed that while babies do not react to another woman's voice, the voice of the mother will activate parts of the brain associated with language skills.
"This is an interesting study that proves for the first time that the infant brain responds to her mother's strong voice. This can be demonstrated scientifically, "said principal investigator Dr. Maryse Lassonde from the University of Montreal, reported by ScienceDaily, Tuesday (12/21/2010).
Dr. Lassonde explained, to conduct this research team to apply the electrodes on 16 head while sleeping infants. Then the researchers asked each child's mother issued a short vowel sounds, such as 'Hello or hi'.
"When their mother is speaking, brain scans clearly show the reaction in the left hemisphere, particularly in the section responsible for language and motor skills. This proves that 'motherese' that describe specific communication between infants and mothers, can be scientifically recognized, "explained Dr Lassonde further.
It is known that babies have innate language ability, but with this study researchers begin to understand what capacity is and how it works scientifically.
"This study confirms that women are the main initiators and shows that there is a neurobiological relationship between prenatal mastery of language and motor skills involved in how to talk," said Dr. Lassonde.
The study is published in Cerebral Cortex and receives funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, Canada Foundation for Innovation and Canada Research Chairs program.
