Newborn babies in study recognized songs played to them while in the womb

Babies who had a lullaby played to them regularly while still in the womb recognized the song months after birth, a study has found.  The researchers had 10 expectant mothers play “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” loudly multiple times per week throughout their last trimester of pregnancy. A few days after birth, they took electroencephalogram, or EEG, recordings of each newborn’s brain by using 12 electrodes scattered over different regions of the head.
