Amir Lahav, ScD
Assistant Professor of Pediatrics Harvard Medical School Amir Lahav is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School with faculty appointments at Mass General Hospital for Children and Harvard School of Public Health. Dr. Lahav received his Doctor of Science degree in Health & Rehabilitation Sciences from Boston University. Dr. Lahav's work is focused on the effects of hospital noise and environmental sounds on the developing brain, with a special interest in the acoustic design of the neonatal intensive care unit. Dr. Lahav's research aims to determine how exposure to maternal sounds affects brain mechanisms that support stress, language, cognition, and attention. Dr. Lahav's work is funded by the National Science Foundation, The Charles Hood Foundation, The Peter and Elizabeth Tower Foundation, and The Gerber Foundation.

It's not clear what this means in the long run, "but it shows how important it is for mothers to interact with their premature babies when they visit," said study co-author Amir Lahav, an assistant professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School in Boston.
Babies born prematurely often suffer from hearing and language problems, Lahav explained, and the researchers wanted to know more about how they're affected by the weeks they spend in an incubator instead of in their mother's womb. "Babies begin to hear at 25 weeks' gestation, and they're exposed to the mother's voice and heartbeat," Lahav said. "Our findings do not prove that the brains of these babies are necessarily better, and we cannot conclude that they will end up with no developmental disabilities," Lahav said. "We don't know the advantages of having a bigger auditory cortex." It's also not clear if mothers' voices are crucial inside the womb or if the voices of other people might also make a difference. Still, Lahav said the research suggests that parents of premature babies need to talk to them during visits in the hospital. "Hold your baby, talk to your baby, sing to your baby," he said.

"Preemies born this early are basically fetuses that happen to be out there by accident," said Amir Lahav, an assistant professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and senior author of the study.
"This is part of the biological recipe for how you cook a baby," Dr. Lahav said. "Any deviation from original recipe" could result in developmental problems, he added.
