Research in Brief

New Research with Wearable Brain Scanners. Researchers are using wearable brain scanners to give us the clearest picture yet of the electrical activity in young children’s developing brains. These scanners may help researchers better understand the connection between critical developmental milestones, like walking and talking, and changing brain function. The scanners could also help us understand the emergence of neurodevelopmental conditions like autism.
