Eye contact with baby accelerates learning and increases communication

Researchers from Cambridge University, MRC CBU and University of East London have found that parents’ and their babies’ brain waves aligned and babies made more effort to communicate when parents were gazing at them

The team examined the brain patterns of babies and compared them to the brain activity of their parents who were singing nursery rhymes in different gaze conditions. They found that the brainwaves of the infants and their parents were more synchronised when the adult’s gaze met the baby’s eyes. This resulted in babies making more effort to communicate. The researchers explain this by the joint-networked state that is created in gazing to optimize information transfer during communication and learning.
