Brain circuits for successful emotional development established during infancy

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/10/181010093617.htm

And the growth of these brain circuits during the second year of life predicted the IQ and emotional control of the children at 4 years old, suggesting new avenues for early detection and intervention for children who are at risk for emotional problems.
