But over the first few months of life, the brain’s higher centers explode with new synapses. “For the large majority of people, the dominant area in language processing is in the middle of the left hemisphere of the brain, in particular in Broca’s Area and Wernicke’s Area” (Siegler, 1998, p. 142).

After being trained, when she tried to convey her messages to the experimenters, she used basic one-word or two-word structures, such as “stop it”, “no more”, and “jump”, when she wanted to jump as opposed to saying “I want to jump” or “I like to jump” or “Jumping is fun”. Experts have tried to teach Genie to learn language at a higher level, but she was not able to do so because she missed the critical period.
Many studies have been conducted and they have concluded a healthy lifestyle, physical activity, and exposing young children to a variety of education material assist with child development. The first few years of a child’s life is crucial as far as his intellectual as well as socio-emotional abilities are concerned (Bose, 2000). Brain Development Brains and the more nonessential parts of the nervous system are made up of neurons (Meadows, 1993 p. 266). The brain is made up of neurons, axons, dendrites, and synapse. They all have their individual job that contributes to the functioning of the body.

This is the stage which a woman confirms the pregnancy by conducting pregnancy test, and based on changes that occur physically as well as hormone imbalances. One of the clear indications of pregnancy at this stage is the stop in menstruation. On the other hand, some of the physical changes that can be observed clearly in this stage is high degree of tiredness, breast enlargement, and breast becomes tender (Heler & M.D., 2002).

If they drink or do drugs, it can severely affect the babies development. By the time most woman find out they are pregnant (5-8 weeks) the organs have already begun forming. “At about 21 days, eyes begin to appear, and at 24 days the heart cells begin to differentiate.” During the fourth week, the arms and legs being to grow. At eight weeks, the organism is just about one inch long and the face has started to develop.
Crucial developmental years Infancy is a crucial stage in human development. But is overstimulating just as harsh as under-stimulating a child? To understand one must first understand the changes occurring in brain development during infancy. During development inside the mother's womb, the embryo produces trillions of neurons. According to Doctor Arnold B. Scheibel, at least 50,000 brain cells are produced every second of the embryo's intrauterine life.
As children grow towards adolescence they go through many stages of development. Child development refers to the stages of physical, cognitive, emotional, social, and language growth that occurs from the birth to beginning of adulthood. All aspects of a child's development may be affected by many different factors, including a poor learning environment, lack of social interaction, cultural background differences, abuse, and loss of a parent. All of the before mentioned examples can affect the child's maturation, "a biological growth process that enables orderly changes in behavior, relatively uninfluenced by experience" (Myers 172). Children grow and mature at very different rates, some faster than others, which is why it is necessary to understand the importance of the different types of child development.
Child Development Babies grow and develop at a very rapid rate during the first year of life. They grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. In this paper I will discuss the physical growth and development patterns of an infant all the way through adulthood. Development is the baby's increased skill in using various body parts. When dealing with a development of a child there are three basic development rules.
Her mother still had to recover for a couple days in Alaska from her emergency caesarian. After arriving at the Seattle Children’s Hospital she was rushed into the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. At first the doctors were talking about Osteogenesis Imperfecta, which is doctor speak for, “brittle bone disease.” So no one was allowed to hold her at all for a couple of days. Since then they’ve diagnosed her with Arthrogryposis, which is a doctor word for extremely stiff joints, and Hypotonia, extreme muscle weakness. On top of all of that we discovered that Charlee had suffered two small strokes during her birth, which the doctors say is common and may hav... ... middle of paper ... ...r her, and immediately Charlee’s face transformed.
Premature Preterm birth is babies who are born closer to 32 to 34 weeks. It is a major challenge for women that gives birth between to 32 to 34 weeks, risking infants with disability and health problems causing life or death. Preterm birth not only affects infants, but families too. Families who need to provide care for their infants need to be prepared. Infants spend several months in the hospital to be checked on for respiratory distress syndrome and brain development.
