Scientists: the child begins to recognize speech in the womb

A recent study showed that in the brain form new neural connections in response to pseudoloma heard in the womb. These sounds give impetus to further speech development of the child, determine, to some extent, his ability to learn languages in the future, writes Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The embryo begins to perceive the sounds already in the 27th week of intrauterine development. Since that time, getting used to the sound background, he meets the native language, fragments of stories, his mother's voice. All information remains deep in the brain of the child which contributes to the formation of new neuronal connections that can be detected by monitoring brain activity in the EEG.

The present study was to play mothers after 29 weeks of combination pseudowords "TA-TA" and "so-and-so." Scientists also changed the volume, frequency, pitch play.

After the children were born, they lost the same syllable and measured the activity and response of the brain to a stimulus. Scientists have registered increased activity relationships of the brain, which indicates the formation of new neural connections. The same study was conducted with a control group of children who heard before birth only mother's words.

Scientists have proved the formation of new neural connections in response to pseudoloma heard in the womb. Such children do better in the future discerned the pitch, which allowed them to capture changes in the duration and intensity of vowels.

The scientists ' conclusion is as follows: constant talks with the unborn child prepares the nervous system of the baby, archaic noise affected adversely and is of a destructive nature.
