Parent quarrel affects children’s brain health
New British study finds parents’ quarrel affects children’s brain health According to a report from the United States media in February, a new British study found that parents always quarrel in front of their children, which can affect children’s brain development and may cause children to be more likely to suffer from adulthoodMental illness.
Dr. Nicholas Walsh, a psychologist at the University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom, and colleagues studied the brain activity of 58 volunteer volunteers aged 17-19.
Researchers asked participants’ parents to recall family problems experienced by their children from birth to 11 years of age, such as parent quarrels, verbal or physical violence, and apathy or lack of communication among family members.
Researchers have accordingly divided these families into “good families” (less family problems) and “bad families” (except family problems).
It was found that children who had mild to moderate family problems before the age of 11 had relatively small cerebellar parts.
Scientists say the cerebellum is closely related to learning, stress regulation and sensorimotor control.
Small cerebellum in children may lead to a significantly increased risk of developing mental illness in adulthood.
Dr. Walsh pointed out that the impact of domestic violence and other issues on the physical development of children has attracted sufficient attention, and new research has found that poor communication between family members, quarrels, caring, emotional apathy, and tension, etc.It also interferes with key early developments in children’s brains.
