When the going gets tough


When the going gets tough, Mom's brain gets going. That's what scientists are saying after figuring out how motherhood super charges female smarts to equip gals for the rigors of raising a child. "Pregnant women undergo a phase of so called baby brain, when they have an apparent loss of function," explains Dr. Craig Kinsley, professor of neuroscience at the University of Richmond in Virginia. "This is because their brains are being remodeled to cope with the many new demands they will experience." Hormonal changes during breast feeding increases to size of brain cells, which leads to a boost in smarts. "The many benefits seem to emerge from motherhood as the maternal brain rises to the reproductive challenge," he adds. "The changes could last for the rest of their lives, bolstering cognitive abilities and protecting against degenerative diseases."
