How can newborns recognize faces and voices? Is it true that they can "count"? Which brain areas are involved in these early abilities? How do they develop over time?

To what extent life-experiences can shape a developing brain? How strong can be formal education influence? When babies do start to act and to think like adults? 

The CIMeC BabyLab and Neonatal Neuroimaging Unit try to answer these and many other questions!
