This article discusses scientific research focused on how supportive relationships with adults shape early brain development. One highlighted study, the Bucharest Early Intervention Project (BEIP), has examined how early childhood neglect impacts brain development as well as how appropriate nurturing can buffer the effects of early deprivation.
