Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: A ‘Touching Sight’: How Babies’ Brains Process Touch Builds Foundations for Learning

Newswise imageA new study from the University of Washington Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences (I-LABS) provides one of the first looks inside the infant’s brain to show where the sense of touch is processed — not just when a baby feels a touch to the hand or foot, but when the baby sees an adult’s hand or foot being touched, as well. Researchers say these connections help lay the groundwork for the developmental and cognitive skills of imitation and empathy.
