|Emotions in people's faces can be recognised by babies at just four months old, new research has found.
Before infants learn to talk they can recognise signs like smiling and raised eyebrows, the Daily Telegraph reports.
Scientists got four-month-olds to take part in two scenarios, one where eye contact was made with another person and one where the other person avoided it, with both ending in an eyebrow raise and smile.
It was found that babies use the same brain regions as adults when they look at the face of a person.
