The discovery provides clues that could lead to a treatment for Prader-Willi, a genetic disorder that silences genes necessary for normal brain function. Prader-Willi occurs in about one out of every 15,000 births, and is the most common genetic cause of life-threatening childhood obesity.

Each year many deaf children get a cochlear implant to connect to the world of sounds. So far, it was not clear which processes take place in these children when they start to learn language – and why they differ in the level of language they achieve. Now, researchers have found that deaf children with a cochlear implant learn words even faster than those with…

This ability, known as mentalization, plays a crucial role in predicting infant-parent attachment.
