Science 360: The Developing Brain

Scientists are learning more every day about the human brain develops, from embryo to fetus to baby. Scientists are learning more every day about the human brain develops, from embryo to fetus to baby. They're also studying the ways that external factors affect the brain's development. The Science 360 interactive presentation, led by a Morehead educator, examines some of those scientists' findings and what else scientists may discover about the developing brain. Length: 00:07:04

HUMAN BRAIN DEVELOPMENT: NATURE AND NURTURE ( DAVIDSON FILMS )

The fascinating interplay of genetic predispositions and experience in the development of the brain The fascinating interplay of genetic predispositions and experience in the development of the brain after birth is demonstrated in this film produced at the Brain Development Laboratory at the University of Oregon. Three profiles of plasticity are depicted with compelling film sequences of behavioral, MRI and EEG research into the development of visual perception and language acquisition from infancy through old age. A congenitally deaf young woman, hearing university students and lively preschool children participate in controlled studies that illustrate both how neuroscience research is conducted and also how all brains change over time and circumstance. Practical advice for the utilization of sensitive periods and optimal specialization of brain areas make the learning of these concepts meaningful to students. With Helen neville, Ph.D. This is a short clip from the film. Further information available at www.davidsonfilms.com. Length: 00:03:06

Human Brain Development - Thomas Jessell, PhD, Edited Pt 1 (of 2)

Thomas Jessell, PhD, of Columbia University provides a detailed explanation of central nervous syste Thomas Jessell, PhD, of Columbia University provides a detailed explanation of central nervous system development mechanisms in humans. Using the embryonic stage as a platform, he elucidates on such details as location-specific differentiation, transcription factors, protein signaling gradients, and the role of the Sonic Hedgehog gene. Generalizing to brain development, other somatic cell development, and later stages of human development, both fetal and postnatal, Dr. Jessell provides a comprehensive answer to a constant developmental question: "How do so few cells become many specialized cells?" This is a highly edited version, further edited into two parts for YouTube. This is part one. The full, hour-long presentation is an excellent lecture called: "Building Brains: The Molecular Logic of Neural Circuits". Given on 12/04/2008, it is part of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Holiday Lecture Series. It is available for free online.

Advanced Imaging Techniques Improve Understanding of Newborn and Fetal Brain Development

Neuroradiologist Ellen Grant, MD, is combining advanced imaging techniques with computer science to Neuroradiologist Ellen Grant, MD, is combining advanced imaging techniques with computer science to better understand the newborn and fetal brain: watching as it forms and folds, tracking the growth of individual brain structures and detecting problems in brain organization before anything can be noticed by parents or physicians.

The Science of Early Childhood Development

This video from the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University (developingchild.harvard.ed This video from the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University (developingchild.harvard.edu) features Center Director Jack P. Shonkoff, MD, professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, the Harvard School of Public Health, and Harvard Medical School addressing basic concepts of early childhood development, established over decades of neuroscience and behavioral research, which help illustrate why child development—particularly from birth to five years—is a foundation for a prosperous and sustainable society.
