Baby Brain Map

Mar 17, 2016

The Brain Map was adapted in 2006 by ZERO TO THREE from BrainWonders, a collaborative project (1998-2001) between Boston University School of Medicine, Erikson Institute and ZERO TO THREE.

To view the Baby Brain Map, please visit this page on a browser and device that supports Adobe Flash Player.


To get started, select an age range from the pull-down menu and click on it. Depending on the age range, different hotspots on the brain will appear. Click on a hotspot to reveal questions to find out how a baby’s brain develops during this period of brain growth. You’ll also learn what you can do to enrich a very young child’s development.

Don’t forget to click on the questions to display the answers.
