Brain Maturation and the Emotions

Synesthesia

The stimulation of one sensory stimulus to the brain (sound, sight, touch, taste, or smell) by another.

Common in infants because boundaries between sensory parts of the cortex are less distinct.

Cross-modal perception

Infant associates textures with vision, sounds with smells, own body with the bodies of others

Basis for early social understanding

Synesthesia of emotions

Infant’s cry can be triggered by pain, fear, tiredness, or excitement; laughter can turn to tears.

Infants’ emotions are difficult to predict because of the way their brains are activated.
