Baby’s Brain Begins Now: Conception to Age 3

The Urban Child Institute

Decades of research provides us clearer understanding into early brain development including the long-term ramifications that environmental factors such as stress, poverty, neglect and trauma can have on neural functioning over a lifetime.

Discover more by diving into an overview of brain anatomy and function, learn how neurons and synapses are formed to provide the blue print for the brain’s wiring and understand how your child’s brain develops from conception through age three.
