Suggested Responses: Students should describe the super-dense (synaptic connections) infant brain, the path of neural signals, and include the relevant terms, e.g. neuron, axon, dendrite, myelin, synapse, neurotransmitter, pruning, and negative effects of cortisol on brain growth. Terms should be described in ways that indicate an understanding of their role in brain functioning. Students should address the primary importance of attachment in protecting a baby's brain development, warm and prompt response to babies' cries, and the importance of appropriate interaction and sensory stimulation.
