    Babies Detect Sadness in Voices at Three Months


    BABIES as young as three months old can distinguish sad from neutral-sounding voices, according to a new study.

    Parts of their brains tasked with processing emotion light up more when the babies hear sad voices, researchers at two London universities found .

    When looking at three to seven-month-olds, they also found they were more attuned to human sounds like coughing or yawning, than those made by toys or water.

    Evelyne Mercure of University College London said: "Our results suggest the infant temporal cortex is more mature than previously reported.

    "It is a rare demonstration that specialised areas exist in the brain very early in development."

    Anna Blasi of King's College London, added: "It is probably because the human voice is such an important social cue that the brain shows an early specialisation for its processing.

    "This may represent the very first step in social interactions and language learning." (© Daily Telegraph, London)

    KUna siku niliona kwenye Yahoo video, mtoto mdogo nadhani alikuwa hajafika mwaka kwani hajaanza kusimama bila support, yani yeye anacheza mziki 24/7 na wazazi wanamwekea redio kabisa ukizima anawasha tena. Wanasema toka azaliwe yeye amekuwa ni mtu wa kucheza mziki. Sasa madokta wamemfanyia operation waka plant bone marrow kama sikosei kwani wanasema kuna abnomality. Sasa hiyo operation wanasema mtu mzima tu waweza kuwa weak for months lakini katoto toka kametoka kwenye coma kanaendelea kucheza mziki. Inasikitisha na kuchekesha. Mimi angekuwa mwanangu wala nisingmfanyia operation wala nini. Magonjwa ya siku hizi sijuhi ni mwisha wa dunia.
