Child's brain development before birth...1
Posted in 2015

The fetal nervous system — i.e., your baby's brain and spinal cord — is one of the very first systems to develop. In fact, it's making big strides before you even know you're pregnant.

The parts of your baby's brain

Before we get into the science of fetal brain development, here's a quick anatomy primer on your baby's brain. There are five different regions we're familiar with, each responsible for different functions:
  1. Cerebrum: This is the biggest part of the brain, and it's responsible for thinking, remembering and feeling. This is where the cerebral cortex and its various lobes (including the frontal and temporal lobes) reside.
  2. Cerebellum: The area in charge of motor control.
  3. Brain stem: The engine driving many of your baby's most vital functions, including heart rate, breathing and blood pressure.
  4. Pituitary gland: This pea-sized gland releases hormones into your body that are responsible for growth, metabolism and more.
  5. Hypothalamus: This area deals with body temperature, hunger, thirst, sleep and emotions.
With the biology lesson out of the way, read on to find out how and when these various parts start developing.
