Human Auditory System: Newborn babies cry with mother's accent
MedGadget reports on a study by French and German scientists on accent that a newborn uses - conclusion: its mother's. It is well known that a person's hearing system begins functioning while still forming in the womb. I find it fascinating that it is also "training" the speech part of the system at the same time and that the interplay works so soon after birth.
