Charlie Brown
When we hold our babies for the first time, we might imagine that they're clean slates, unmarked by life, when in fact, they've already been shaped by us and by the particular world we live in. Today I want to share with you some of the amazing things that scientists are discovering about what fetuses learn while they're still in their mothers' bellies. First of all, they learn the sound of their mothers' voices. Because sounds from the outside world have to travel through the mother's abdominal tissue and through the amniotic fluid that surrounds the fetus, the voices fetuses hear, starting around the fourth month of gestation, are muted and muffled. One researcher says that they probably sound a lot like the the voice of Charlie Brown's teacher in the old "Peanuts" cartoon. But the pregnant woman's own voice reverberates through her body, reaching the fetus much more readily. And because the fetus is with her all the time, it hears her voice a lot. Once the baby's born, it recognizes her voice and it prefers listening to her voice over anyone else's.
当我们怀孕的时候 也许以为他们只是白纸一张 没有标记的生命 但事实上他们已经开始接受 来自我们和我们生活的世界的影响 今天我想与各位分享一些有趣的事实 是关于科学家发现的 胎儿在母亲子宫里的 学习到的东西 首先 他们会认知母亲的声音 因为外界的声音 会穿过母亲的身体 和包裹着胎儿的羊水 胎儿从妊娠四个月开始 就能够听见的声音 是微弱低沉的 一个研究者说 那声音听起来就象那部老卡通片《花生米》里 查里?布朗的老师的声音 但是母亲的声音 经过自己身体的反射 可以很容易地到达胎儿 并且因为一直相处 胎儿能一直听到母亲声音 一旦出生,宝宝就能识别出母亲的声音 并且比起别人的声音 宝宝更喜欢母亲的
