Washington: Newly-born children learn while they are sleeping -- for at least 16-18 hours a day, a new study shows.The study could lead to identifying those at risk for developmental disorders such as autism and dyslexia."We found a basic form of learning in sleeping newborns, a type of learning that may not be seen in sleeping adults," said Dana Byrd, research affiliate in psychology at University of Florida, who collaborated with a team of scientists.
"These would include siblings of individuals with autism and dyslexia," Byrd said, according to a University of Florida release.The findings were published online this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.IANS
