Three Brains in One! The executive part of the brain manages attention, emotions, and behavior. It weaves together social, emotional, and intellectual capacities in order to help us reach our goals.! ! ! ! ! Pulling together feeling and thinking helps people reect, plan, and evaluate.! ! Jane Healy, Your Childs Growing Mind / Ellen Galinsky, Mind in the Making! 22. 22 Infant! Gazing! Study! 23. Synaptic Density From Rethinking the Brain: New Insights into Early Development by Rima Shore (NY: Families and Work Institute, 1997) Synaptic Density: Synapses are created with astonishing speed in the first three years of life. For the rest of the first decade, childrens brains have twice as many synapses as adults brains. (Drawing supplied by H.T. Chugani) ! 24. Role of Experience! Repeated use strengthens brain connections! If connections are not used, they are pruned away! The brain grows itself for the environment it experiences! Most of this experience-based growth occurs in the cortex (the executive brain)! 25. Experiences that Strengthen Connections! Are frequent, regular, and predictable! Occur in the context of a warm, supportive relationship! Are associated with positive emotion (fun, excitement, humor, comfort)! Involve several senses! Are responsive to the childs interests or initiative! 26. Environment! Welcoming! Warm! Safe! Stimulating! Joyful! 27. Ritual! Invites us ! Unites us! Involves senses! Activates memory! Embodies meaning! Eases transitions! 28. RepetitionRepetitionRepetition ! ! Promotes learning! Increases enjoyment! Creates a sense of safety! 29. SURPRISE! Alert senses Focus attention Activate response Impress -- memory 30. Music Helps Children Develop! Physically! Mentally! Emotionally! Socially! Aesthetically! The basic elements of theListen Like Learnprogram are the basic elements of music, which are: singing, movement, rhythm and melody, and these elements can only be introduced successfully if, at the same time, the children are learning to listen (Cass-Beggs 1986, 21).! 31. Musical experiences! Trigger speech development! Improve concentration! Stimulate learning ! Enrich vocabulary! 32. Movement Movement is responsible for physical! changes in the brain that can lead to! higher intelligence ! ! Movement provides an ! outlet for expression of! emotions! 33. Play! - Playing helps children cope with everyday pressures! - Social play strengthens and builds friendships and attachments! - Imaginative play develops creative problem solving skills! - Physical play helps children to develop gross and ne motor skills as well as balance and coordination.! 34.

Early Brain Development Research Does... Support an emphasis on nurturing and early relationships Indicate that early experiences influence which brain connections are kept and which are pruned away Indicate that optimal brain development requires consistent, responsive, and affectionate caregiving. 38. Relationships Matter! Securely attached toddlers show more condent exploration and mastery in new situations! Adults who are more emotionally responsive and offer verbal and cognitive stimulation enhance childrens development! Raver, 2002 39. Whatisnewmedia?
