Language skills at 1 year predicted by brain structure in infancy
from Medical News Today
Using a brain-imaging technique that examines the entire infant brain, researchers have found that the anatomy of certain brain areas — the hippocampus and cerebellum — can predict children's language abilities at 1 year of age. The University of Washington study is the first to associate these brain structures with future language skills. The results are published in the journal Brain and Language.
