The latest study from Harvard University says that physical violence against children and especially blows to the head in addition to the physical and mental trauma it causes, affects the functioning and development of the brain.
The study, recently published in the journal Child Development, is based on existing studies showing increased activity in certain areas of the brain of children who have experienced physical abuse as punishment.
The research team found that the children who were hit had a greater nervous response in many areas of the prefrontal cortex (PFC). These areas of the brain respond to threat signals and can influence decision-making and situation processing.
"We know that children whose families use corporal punishment are more likely to develop anxiety, depression, behavioral problems and other mental health problems. "In this study, we wanted to see if there was any beating effect on a neurobiological level, in terms of how the brain develops," the researchers said.
