Elevated maternal stress during the COVID-19 pandemic changed the structure, texture and other qualities of the placenta in pregnant mothers.
An innovative DC Mother-Baby Wellness (DC MBW) program at Children’s National Hospital is marking a milestone.
Children’s National Hospital researchers will be creating a new Center for Prenatal, Neonatal & Maternal Health Research.
Prolonged levels of stress and depression during the COVID-19 pandemic contributed to altering key features of fetal brain development.
Women’s elevated anxiety, depression and stress during pregnancy decreased their offspring’s cognitive development at 18 months.
The grant will help uncover the specific cellular response that happens inside a developing brain once it is infected with a virus.
Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glutamate system disruptions may underlie neonatal brain injuries leading to cognitive delays.
Children’s National Hospital announces a $4.2 million funding award to support maternal mental health research.
A study found that socioeconomic status has an impact in the womb, altering the developing fetal brain as well as cortical features.
Anxiety in gestating mothers appears to affect the course of brain development in their fetuses, changing neural connectivity in the womb.
Even when pregnant women have uncomplicated pregnancies, elevated anxiety, stress or depression can alter the structure of the developing fetal brain.
When a diagnosis of fetal congenital heart disease causes pregnant moms to test positive for stress, imaging can detect impaired fetal brain development.
Morphometric and textural analyses of magnetic resonance imaging can point out subtle architectural deviations associated with fetal growth restriction during the second half of pregnancy, a first-time finding that has the promise to lead to earlier intervention.
Children’s National researchers have been awarded a $2.5 million, three-year grant from the NIH to study an innovative treatment to optimize brain development in babies with CHD after cardiac surgery.
Dietary lipids, already an important source of energy for tiny preemies, also provide a much-needed brain boost by significantly increasing global brain volume as well as increasing volume in regions involved in motor activities and memory, according to research presented during the Pediatric Academic Societies 2019 Annual Meeting.
Micro-preemies who primarily consume breast milk have significantly higher levels of metabolites important for brain growth and development, according to sophisticated imaging conducted by an interdisciplinary research team at Children’s National.
Too often, medical institutions erect an artificial boundary between caring for the developing fetus inside the womb and caring for the newborn whose critical brain development continues outside the womb.
Yao Wu, Ph.D., a research postdoctoral fellow in the Developing Brain Research Laboratory at Children’s National Health System, has received a Thrasher Research Fund early career award to expand knowledge about regions of the fetal brain that are vulnerable to injury from congenital heart disease (CHD) during pregnancy. CHD, the most common birth defect, can […]
Babies born prematurely – before 37 weeks of pregnancy – often have a lot of catching up to do. Not just in size. Preterm infants typically lag behind their term peers in a variety of areas as they grow up, including motor development, behavior and school performance. New research suggests one way to combat this […]
