What's the difference between these two brains? Neurologists are beginning to understand exactly how a baby’s interaction with their mother determines how, and indeed whether, the brain grows in the way that it should. Professor Allan Schore, of UCLA, who has surveyed the scientific literature and has made significant contributions to it, stresses that the growth of brain cells is a “consequence of an infant’s interaction with the main caregiver [usually the mother]”. The growth of the baby’s brain “literally requires positive interaction between mother and infant. The development of cerebral circuits depends on it.” Prof Schore points out that if a baby is not treated properly in the first two years of life, the genes for various aspects of brain function, including intelligence, cannot operate, and may not even come into existence. Nature and nurture cannot be disentangled: the genes a baby has will be profoundly affected by the way it is treated.

'I'm not a hypochondriac. I have a disease. All these things that are wrong with me are real, they are endometriosis' I have a disease that I know nothing about. I thought I knew everything, or at least a lot about it – but that turned out to be very far from the truth and also very bad for my health. I have endometriosis. For a long time I thought it was all about the debilitating period pain I’d had from the time I was about 14. Cramping I’d heard of and could identify in my belly, but it was harder to describe the ache in my back and how my legs felt under such constant pressure that it was hard for me to stand upright. The Lost Girls: ‘Chaotic and Curious, Women With ADHD All Have Missed Red Flags That Haunt Us’ “Are your goals too high? When you explained your job to me…” the psychologist trailed off.
