The memory of a child already begins to develop in the womb. This allows the child to recognize voices, sounds and smell of his mother after birth. The brains develop rapidly in the first years after birth. Around the age of three, four experiences are stored permanently.
An unborn baby’s memory
In an unborn baby, the development of the brains begins immediately after conception. During pregnancy and in the first years after birth brains develop very quickly. The brains consist of several components, each with its own function. Those parts and functions should collaborate with each other in order to function properly. There are connections required, which come about through experiences. This allows you to feel, think, learn and move. The compounds in the brains will work better together and develop, as there are more experiences.
An unborn baby responds after 22 weeks of loud noises. If the baby is born, he will recognize the sounds of the womb, as the voice of his mother. Also, odor and taste stimuli are familiar. The baby knows his mother to her scent.
A baby’s memory
At birth, the short- and long-term memory are not sufficiently developed to store experiences. Traumatic events are stored in the subconscious and can later in the same situation, evoke a feeling of anxiety. Babies can acts that they see in others, save and imitate. For example, a six month old baby an act one day remember. On a nine month old baby, it’s been a month and a one year can remember this for three months. All actions that can do the child itself be better stored in the memory.
The memory of a toddler
From the moment the child learns to talk, he can consciously remember experiences. In addition to language development are also the personal development and maturation of the brains of interest in remembering events. The memories of young children going back to the second year of life. Often they can tell you about in detail here, but as they get older disappear reminders. Around the age of four memories are permanently stored and can still be retrieved in adulthood.
The training of the memory
Connections in the brains go through practice more and better work together. You can train with exercises so the memory of a child.
Through repetition, everything is better stored in the memory. Keep the things you do or appoint behold, your child will be better and longer remember.
The language development is important in training the memory. Talk to your child about experiences that have experienced it. By talking about it, he will remember them better. Also aloud helps in the training of the memory. This stimulates language development.
The hemispheres are, by motion, encouraged to work together. The brains are provided with more oxygen, which has a positive influence on the production of new compounds.
