Did you know that a mother’s voice has cellular-level effects on her child’s brain? Researchers from the Stanford University School of Medicine have discovered that for little kids, hearing their mum’s voice actually activates and lights up many different regions in the brain. These regions are involved in reward processing, emotions, facial recognition, and detection of what is subjectively relevant. The study also found that kids can recognize their mothers’ voices in less than a second, and suggests that children whose brains show more connections when they hear their moms’ voice are more socially gifted than those whose don’t.
