With major research institutes using advanced neuroscience to reveal groundbreaking insights into the importance of the first five years of life, we are now in a unique position to influence public perception and policy about early brain development. This new science shows how critical the early years are to future life outcomes and that brain development only persists in social contexts. Relationships are key – an important tenant of both A DECLARATION OF INTERDEPENDENCE and the feature film CONNECTED – and we have scientific data to prove it. BRAIN POWER will show the power and potential of this research.
We have been studying amazing research that includes Dr. Patricia Kuhl and Dr. Andy Meltzoff’s research from University of Washington’s Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences (I-LABS), and Dr. Jack Shonkoff’s research from The Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University. Here is some of what we’ve been studying:
