In The Beginning
Newborns And Their EnvironmentStreaming Video - 2010
From the very first moment after birth, babies can see, hear, smell, and taste-and, just as quickly, they begin putting these senses to work. This program depicts several newborns interacting with their surroundings and relying upon simple yet deeply ingrained survival strategies. Intimate, awe-inspiring scenes of these strategies in action show how brand-new infants prefer to look at faces and listen to human speech more than anything else, how they motivate other people to care for them, and how, through these fine-tuned interactions, babies gradually start to make sense of the world. Sleep, feeding, and brain development are among several specific topics.
