बच्चे का दिमाग खेलने में अग्रणी होता है: अध्ययन शिशुओं और मातृ तंत्रिका गतिविधि के बीच आश्चर्यजनक कारण लिंक पाता है
माता-पिता का दिमाग खेलने के दौरान बच्चे के दिमाग की नकल करता है, एक नए अध्ययन के अनुसार. जब शिशु खेल रहे होते हैं तो उनके मस्तिष्क में उच्च आवृत्ति की गतिविधि दिखाई देती है. आश्चर्यजनक परिणाम में, researchers Sam Wass of the University of East London and Victoria Leong of Cambridge University, both in England, found that parents’ brains show similar bursts – taking their cues from the babies.

The finding could be an important step in understanding baby brain development, but the researchers concede that their अध्ययन, जर्नल में प्रकाशित एलसीएसबी टीम ने वैज्ञानिक जर्नल में अपने परिणाम प्रकाशित किए हैं, might raise more questions than it answers.
“We don’t know, उदाहरण के लिए, whether some parents are more responsive to their babies than others – and if so, क्यों,” Leong says.
“And our study just looked at mums, so we don’t know whether mums and dads may be different in how they respond neurally to their babies. Our findings are exciting, but there is a lot more to investigate about how, बिल्कुल, this type of neural responsiveness by parents may help young children to learn.”
The team took dual electroencephalography (EEG) readings from 12-month-old infants during solo play, and from babies and mothers during joint play. The theta power of the EEG readings, which indicate cerebral activity, tracked the infants’ attention.
In addition to the finding that parent brains’ mimic those of the infants, the study also showed that the more responsive the parental brain is, the longer the baby can maintain attention.
“We know that, when an adult plays jointly together with a child, this helps the child to sustain attention to things,” says Wass.
“But until now we haven’t really understood why this is. Our findings suggested that, when a baby pays attention to things, the adult’s brain tracks and responds to her infant’s looking behaviour – as if her infant’s actions are echoed in the parent’s brain activity.”
The study more accurately reflects real-world baby learning than some previous studies, the authors suggest, but there is much more to explore.
“Most infants spend the majority of their waking hours in the company of others. But almost everything we know about early learning in the brain comes from studies looking at individual baby brains in isolation,” Wass says.
