ORLANDO Fla. (Reuters) – Babies in the womb show evidence of learning by their 34th week, three weeks earlier than previously thought, new research has found.
“It really pushed the envelope” in terms of how early babies begin to learn, lead researcher Charlene Krueger, associate professor at the University of Florida’s College of Nursing, said on Thursday.
The study, published in the journal Infant Behavior and Development, followed 32 women from their 28th through 38th weeks of pregnancy in an investigation to pinpoint when the ability to learn emerges.
Krueger had the women repeat three times out loud a set 15-second nursery rhyme, and do it twice a day for six weeks. The selected rhyme was previously unknown to the mothers.
The fetuses’ heart rates were monitored at 32, 33 and 34 weeks as they listened to a recording of a female stranger recite the rhyme.
By the 34th week, Krueger said, the heart rates of the tested fetuses showed an overall slight decline while listening to the recording, compared with a control group of fetuses whose heart rates slightly accelerated while listening to a recording of a new nursery rhyme. Read More…
I’m so confused, learning in the womb? Progressives tell us that they are just little blobs of flesh that can be ripped out on demand, even President Obama said that having one is “punishment.” How can a “blob of flesh” learn?
