Why Love Matters
How Affection Shapes a Baby's Brain
By Sue Gerhardt
Why Love Matters explains why love is essential to brain development in the early years of life, and how early interactions between babies and their parents have lasting and serious consequences.
Sue Gerhardt explores how the earliest relationship shapes the baby's nervous system. She shows how the development of the brain can affect future emotional well being, and goes on to look at specific pathways that can affect the way we respond to stress and contribute to conditions such as anorexia, addiction, and anti social behaviour.
Why Love Matters is a lively and accessible interpretation of the latest findings in neuro-science, psychology, psychoanalysis and biochemistry. It is invaluable reading for parents and professionals alike
