Thought I would share this with the other birth junkies out there. :)

 

Quote from the article: “The increasing prevalence of c-sections driven by convenience rather than medical necessity may have a previously unsuspected lasting effect on brain development and function in humans as well,” Horvath said in a statement released by Yale.

Key point from the article to consider:

 

"[B]ecause the research was done in mice, it is highly preliminary."

 

The article isn't even particularly clear about the nature of the research - like when was this protein measured and how?  There are way too many missing details.
