7. Seeing and the brain The visual pathway ). The two left halves (shaded), each representing the right half of the visual field because of the inversion of the image in the eye, now join together at the optic chiasm, and proceed to the left lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN). Similarly the two right halves representing the left side of the visual field go to the right LGN. The LGNs are structures in the thalamus, deep in the brain, and they relay the signals from the retinal ganglion cells, without a great deal of change, to the primary visual area on

3. How behaviour develops Recipes for success When we watch birds catching worms and bringing them back to feed their chicks, we can easily overlook the complexity of the behaviours the birds are carrying out so beautifully. How do these and other behaviours develop during the bird’s lifetime, from its start as a fertilized egg to being a parent feeding its own young?

1. Babies and what they know Early learning slower sucking was required to hear their mother’s voice—and the babies reversed their suck rates. Similar ‘sucking’ experiments have been done using story reading. Mothers read a particular story every day to their ‘bump’ during the final trimester. At birth, the infants could distinguish the familiar story from a novel story. Indeed, sucking experiments have even shown that infants can learn music inside the womb. Infants whose mothers were fans of the soap opera Neighbours were able to recognize the Neighbours theme tune at birth.
