New noises, laughing, games and gestures

In this chapter we examine how experience directly affects brain development and look at the crucial role the primary carer has in shaping this development. We look at Orson’s developing emotional intelligence and again, how Mum supports this development as they play and communicate with one another. Maria Robinson offers an explanation of the physiological brain development that is taking place during these integral interactions.
