Three Core Concepts in Early Development
CENTER ON THE DEVELOPING CHILD – HARVARD UNIVERSITY
Harvard University’s Center on the Developing Child, in conjunction with the National Scientific Council on the Developing Child, developed a three-part video series depicting Three Core Concepts in Early Development.
The video series breaks down the following concepts in early brain development:
- Experiences Build Brain Architecture
- Serve and Return Interaction Shapes Brain Circuitry
- Toxic Stress Derails Healthy Development
With advances in neuroscience, molecular biology and genomics we now have a clearer understanding of how early experiences are built into our bodies and brains, for better or for worse.
