Researchers from Cardiff University are working in conjunction with biotech company PerkinElmer, to develop a new diagnostic kit of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The kit will be able to screen for DMD by analyzing dried neonatal blood spots.
Researchers from the Developing Human Connectome Project have released over 500 brain scans from newborn babies as part of an open-source effort to allow other researchers to study human brain development.
University of Cambridge researchers report making eye contact with a baby causes brainwave synchronization in both the child and person they are looking at. Researchers believe this synchronization can help boost communication and learning skills.
A new study reports inadequate iron intake during pregnancy can have implications for infant brain development.
Babies in NICU sleep better when their hear their mom's voice, a new study reports. Researchers found babies slept better and woke less often when they were played recordings of their mother's reading a story.

A new deep learning algorithm, based on automatic speech recognition, is able to accurately identify features in an infant's cry and differentiate between normal versus abnormal cry signals.
Researchers used non invasive MRI brain scans to map the brains of newborns. The study reveals the brain architecture that emerges as the brain reshapes during the third trimester of pregnancy. The map can be used to detect atypical connections in the brain that serve as biomarkers for ASD.
Infants who experience poor sleep quality and disrupted sleep may be at increased risk of depression, anxiety, and behavioral problems as toddlers.
