A new study claims that the noise of a frequently crying baby could disturb your moods and can also disturb your peace. This study claims that certain brain functions can be affected because of the constant crying of a baby around.
This study also says that the constant noise could also impact your decision making abilities drastically. You might tend to take hasty decisions too.
Your attention and focus levels may also suffer as the noise could cause cognitive issues. As we are all programmed to take care of the baby, your instinct disturbs you a bit when the baby cries constantly.
The study experimented with a group of parents who were made to listen to audio files of baby's cries and were asked to carry out certain tasks that needed attention.
When the brain activity of the participants was measured researchers understood that the performance of their cognitive levels dipped a bit due to the crying sounds of the baby.
As the human brain needs certain factors to carry out efficiently without conflict, certain sounds may disturb it. In fact, some adults are even averse to a baby's cry though they love babies.
Also, a baby's cry indicates that a parent must go and give attention. So, this kind of response is generally triggered in the brain when an adult listens to the sound while doing any activity.
