Here I have provided a simple article discussing the idea that there is communication from the fetus to the mom’s brain and vice versa through the placenta. The idea that this results in changes in gene expression in both the mother’s brain and the fetus’s brain is introduced. I have also included the scientific article that this short news story is talking about for you to read (stick to the introduction, results and conclusions to make your life easier.
In several paragraphs, describe what you understand about these articles. What types of long-lasting effects does this cross-talk have on the mother and the newborn? Why is this news?
When you are done, you must respond to 2 other posts (I will provide them after I submit my discussion since I can’t see others posts before posting my own).
