According to the new study, hearing the cry of an infant activates brain areas associated with movement and speech, and certain brain and behavioral patterns are universal across many cultures. In other words, the crying of babies triggered the moms’ brains to move and prepare to talk, even before the mothers had necessarily processed what was happening and what they needed to do. A new MRI study finds that mothers’ brains are hardwired to comfort crying babies. The mother and baby relationship may be more complex than previously thought. The new study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science journal observed the brains of 684 mothers in 11 countries and how they respond to their crying babies with the.
Each mom, when hearing her baby cry, had virtually the same brain activity which spurred her to move, speak and respond to the child. The researchers concluded that mothers are inherently “hard-wired” to hear and respond to an infant’s cry. Mothers’ brains have a different level of sensitivity to crying babies. In humans and in mice, dads often respond to a baby’s cries, but the brain chemistry is a little different: According to Froemke, extra oxytocin doesn’t speed up the reaction to crying pups in male mice the way it does for females.
In women’s brains, there was a decrease in activity in two areas known to be active during mind wandering — the dorsal medial prefrontal and posterior cingulate areas. By contrast, these regions in. In human mothers, such as the women in the new study, oxytocin and other brain chemicals could be at play in reinforcing the urgency of responding to a crying baby, Froemke said. First this suggests that VD mothers are more sensitive to own baby‐cry than CSD mothers in the early postpartum in sensory processing, empathy, arousal, motivation, reward and habit‐regulation circuits.
Second, independent of mode of delivery, parental worries and mood are related to specific brain activations in response to own baby‐cry. A study found that the so-called “cuddle hormone”, oxytocin, which surges following childbirth, changes the way auditory signals are processed in.
