A Child's Mind Altered By Poverty

Kimberly Noble, a Neuroscientist from Columbia University, recently conducted a study which indicates that there is a direct correlation between poverty and the brain architecture of a low-income child.
Noble and her colleagues utilized a standard psychological testing method, to evaluate the cognitive skills of children from various socioeconomic backgrounds. They discovered that there was a significant difference in language skills, along with other cognitive measures, among children of low income households as compared to high-income households.
