Brain Structure in Premature Babies Linked to Emotional Processing in Preschool

Posted by in categories: futurism, neuroscience

Summary: Brain connectivity at birth may impact emotional processing and social development later in childhood, especially in children born preterm. Researchers found children born preterm with a weaker uncinate fasciculus, the white-matter tract that connects brain regions associated with emotional processing, were more likely to interpret situations in a negative light.
