Why does physical activity during childhood matter? (12/12/2014)

Most scientific research on the topic of physical inactivity has focused on the consequences of physical inactivity for physical health, with significant attention to obesity and medical conditions such as diabetes. 'The Relation of Childhood Physical Activity to Brain Health, Cognition, and Scholastic Achievement' (Charles Hillman and colleagues, University of Illinois; Society for Research in Child Development), provides compelling new data on the consequences of physical inactivity for neural function, cognitive task performance, and academic achievement. ...> Full Article


Heavier newborns show academic edge in school (12/11/2014)

Birth weight makes a difference to a child's future academic performance, according to new Northwestern University research that found heavier newborns do better in elementary and middle school than infants with lower birth weights. Led by a multidisciplinary team of Northwestern researchers, the study raises an intriguing question: Does a fetus benefit from a longer stay in the mother's womb? ...> Full Article


Full-day preschool linked with increased school readiness compared with part-day (12/8/2014)

Children who attended a full-day preschool program had higher scores on measures of school readiness skills (language, math, socio-emotional development, and physical health), increased attendance, and reduced chronic absences compared to children who attended part-day preschool, according to a study in the Nov. 26 issue of JAMA. ...> Full Article


Babies' interest in faces linked to callous and unemotional traits (10/29/2014)

Scientists at the University of Manchester, King's College London and the University of Liverpool have found that an infant's preference for a person's face, rather than an object, is associated with lower levels of callous and unemotional behaviors in toddlerhood. ...> Full Article


Visual exposure predicts infants' ability to follow another's gaze (8/19/2014)

Following another person's gaze can reveal a wealth of information critical to social interactions and also to safety. Gaze following typically emerges in infancy, and new research looking at preterm infants suggests that it's visual experience, not maturational age, that underlies this critical ability. ...> Full Article


New study on mobile phones and children's cognitive development (5/26/2014)

A new study launching today will investigate whether the use of mobile phones and other wireless technologies might affect children's cognitive development. ...> Full Article


Study shows lower verbal test score for toddlers who play non-educational games on touch screens (5/8/2014)

A recent study by pediatricians from the Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York examined infants 0-3 years old that used touch-screen devices to determine if their use was of any educational benefit to infants and toddlers. The study showed that children who played non-educational games using touch-screen devices had lower verbal scores upon testing. ...> Full Article


Pointing is infants' first communicative gesture (2/25/2014)

Catalan researchers have studied the acquisition and development of language in babies on the basis of the temporary coordination of gestures and speech. The results are the first in showing how and when they acquire the pattern of coordination between the two elements which allows them to communicate very early. ...> Full Article


Cognitive development 'growth charts' may help diagnose and treat psychosis-risk kids (2/14/2014)

Cognitive development 'growth charts' may help diagnose and treat psychosis-risk kidsPenn Medicine researchers have developed a better way to assess and diagnose psychosis in young children. By "growth charting" cognitive development alongside the presentation of psychotic symptoms, they have demonstrated that the most significant lags in cognitive development correlate with the most severe cases of psychosis. Their findings are published online this month in JAMA Psychiatry. ...> Full Article


Messy children make better learners (12/10/2013)

Messy children make better learnersParents, let your children get messy in the high chair. They learn better that way. That's according to a new study from the University of Iowa, which concludes that a 16-month-old's setting and degree of interaction enhances his or her ability to identify nonsolid objects and name them. Results published in the journal Developmental Science. ...> Full Article

A team of researchers at the University of Calgary's Hotchkiss Brain Institute have discovered that adult brain cell production might be determined, in part, by the early parental environment. The study suggests that dual parenting may be more beneficial than single parenting. ...> Full Article


Ability to remember memories' origin not fully developed in youths (9/4/2011)

During childhood and adolescence, children develop the ability to remember not only past events but the origin of those memories. New research finds that the ability to remember the origin of memories is a relatively long process that matures during adolescence but isn't fully developed until adulthood. This study included18 children, 20 adolescents, and 20 young adults, all of whom completed a two-part computer-based memory task developed by the researchers. ...> Full Article
