Study: Early Baby Response to Emotions

From across the pond in London, a new study.

LONDON -- Babies can respond to emotions in a human voice at just three months old -- earlier than previously thought -- researchers believe.
The results of scans on 21 sleeping babies suggested the brain responded to the type of sounds being played.
Researchers said it had previously been unclear when human brains developed the ability to process voices and emotions.
Scientists hope to learn the difference between the way autistic and non-autisitc brains develop as a result.
