Frontal Lobe Underdevelopment Traced to Lack of Childhood Bonding

“Gates of Hell” by Auguste Rodin

“When the cerebral cortex is damaged, raw limbic emotions rage freely through human words and deeds, as we have seen in the literature on T[raumatic] B[rain] I[njury].

There is, in fact very convincing evidence that sociopaths and recidivist criminals have a shrunken or impaired frontal lobe. Lacking this ‘buffer’ of social evaluation and inner control, the sociopath is said to be ‘capable of anything.’

(Additional evidence suggests that one of the primary causes of frontal lobe underdevelopment is a lack of primary nurturance and a ‘normal’ family life.)”

  1. “During the last decade, many American families have opened their hearts and homes to children adopted from Eastern European orphanages. After coming to the United States, however, these children often experience a set of developmental problems that affect their growth, learning and social interactions.

    By studying these children and the problems they face, researchers at the University of Wisconsin (UW)-Madison have developed a better understanding of how certain early childhood experiences can alter the development of the brain as well as the development of particular skills or abilities. Preliminary results from the study were presented earlier this year at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Denver.

    As lead investigator of the Wisconsin International Adoption Research Program, Seth Pollak, PhD, a psychologist at UW-Madison, examined certain skills and abilities among 5- and 6-year-olds who had a profound experience early in life: During their first seven to 41 months of life, these children lived in Russian and Romanian orphanages.”
