Creating Healthy Connections: Nurturing Brain Development From Birth to Three

In this podcast, Dr. Alison Gopnik vividly describes a number of compelling recent research studies that illustrate how very young children’s brains develop and how parents can use that information to nurture their children's healthy development. 

Dr. Gopnik is a professor of psychology and affiliate professor of philosophy at the University of California at Berkeley, as well as author of The Philosophical Baby and co-author of The Scientist in the Crib:  What Early Learning Tells Us About the Mind.
