Understanding relationships - the contribution of neuroscience

This commentary provides an introduction and overview of findings from neuroscience research over recent years that are relevant for considerations in regard to the social and emotional development of infants, toddlers and young children. Beyond physiological aspects of brain chemistry and the formation of synapses and pathways in a child’s brain, the importance of a caring relationship with a primary care giver during the first months and the impact of severe strass factors on the development of young children are discussed from a neuroscience perspective.
