A preference for our mother’s voice over our father’s voice has been detected as early as
the day after birth.
Alcohol may cause fetal damage by leaving chemical marks on DNA that switch genes abnormally on or off. This best illustrates
an epigenetic effect.

Maturation refers to
biological growth processes that are relatively uninfluenced by experience.
The concept of maturation is most relevant to understanding the absence of
bladder control among 2-year-olds.

Prenatal Development | Introduction to Psychology – When the organism is about nine weeks old, the embryo is called a fetus. At this stage, the fetus is about the size of a kidney bean and begins to take on the recognizable form of a human being as the "tail" begins to disappear. From 9-12 weeks, the sex organs begin to differentiate.changes taking place in major periods during the life-span: prenatal, infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old age. This would be a journey of personal understanding and self-discovery which should help in your future development. The study of human development would also help you to deal with others better. Introduction not to bePrenatal development starts at conception and ends with the birth of your baby.

Prenatal Development: A Look Across Three Trimesters – "The development of a human being begins with fertilization, a process by which two highly specialized cells, the spermatozoon from the male and the oocyte from the female, unite to give rise to a new organism, the zygote." ***** Human Embryology, 3rd ed. Bradley M. Patten, (New York: McGraw Hill, 1968), 43.A brief discussion about the 8 Stages Of Human Development. Overview of fetal development It involves tremendous growth – from a single cell to an organism complete with brain and behavioral capabilities the successful achievement of which leads to happiness and success with later tasks while failure leads to unhappiness, socialThe process of prenatal development occurs in three main stages. The first two weeks after conception are known as the germinal stage, the third through the eighth week is known as the embryonic period, and the time from the ninth week until birth is known as the fetal period.
