(Excerpt-PLEASE read full article, get educated and involved in these issues, the anatomy & physiology of the human brain is so important to be "in the know")


Can the lack of love and touch alter the development of the brain?
Child psychologist and author Dr. Bruce Perry says, "Absolutely. It sounds very odd, but, in fact, when you are an infant and your brain is developing, the love that the people around you give, the touch, the eye contact, the tone of voice, the things, the physical manifestations of lour love literally provide stimulation to the developing brain, and the neurons in the brain have more sprouts."
