Signs can Help to Understand Infants’ Developing Brain

29 Jul 17

It sounds wired when you read that dirty diapers of infants can help you to understand their brain development, though it is true. Many times pediatricians advise the parents to dutifully check the contents of each one because the color and consistency of what they leave behind can inform a lot about their health.

Researchers from the UNC School of Medicine did a study on using sample facial taken from dozens of one-year-olds and cognitive assessments of the same children a year later. Through the researchers, the scientists came to know about the link between certain kinds of microbial communities and higher levels of cognitive development afterwards.

As per the scientists, this is the first time that they have come across an association between microbial communities and cognitive development which has been demonstrated in humans.

The finding also demonstrated that the gut is home to trillions of microbes. These microbes can have an enormous impact on the health of individuals. The health effects also include humans’ ability to metabolize the nutrients in the food to the risk of developing gastrointestinal disorders such as colitis.

The group of microbes, micro biome, can be identified in several ways however; one of the most common is to estimate the relative abundance of different kinds of bacteria.
