Three Core Concepts in Early Development

 
Share

This new, three-part video series from the Center and the National Scientific Council on the Developing Child depicts how advances in neuroscience, molecular biology, and genomics now give us a much better understanding of how early experiences are built into our bodies and brains, for better or for worse.  

This short video series (each video is 1-2 minutes long) provides very helpful insight for those working with children with traumatic pasts.

Watch the videos:

1. Experiences Build Brain Architecture

2. Serve & Return Interaction Shapes Brain Circuitry

3. Toxic Stress Derails Healthy Development
