Infections in newborns affect their behavior problems

According to the new research published in Journal of Neuroscience proves that there is a link between the newborn infections and their behavioral problems. As per this research the brain stop the access of needful iron that plays a very important role in the development of a child. Further the researchers found that the specific cells present in brain require iron to produce the white matter. This white matter is essential for communication among the cells in the central nervous system. The infections in newborn can affect to control reaching of this iron to the needful part and hence is responsible for the behavior. The senior author, Jonathan Godbout, associate professor of neuroscience at The Ohio State University explains, “What's important is that the timing of the inflammation during brain development switches the brain's gears from development to trying to deal with inflammation. The consequence of that is this abnormal iron storage by neurons that limits access of iron to the rest of the brain.”
