I’m watching a documentary on Netflix called Alive Inside: The Story of Music and Memory.
A quote from the documentary regarding life in the womb:
Amazingly, after 6 months of development, the cerebral cortex is capable of thought. Researchers have studied the sounds of newborns and discovered that in their cries are patterns that reflect their mother’s speech. This means that even before we are born, we are learning to sing with another human being.
Our first mothers.
