How to give your baby a bigger brain....

No, it's not Baby Einstein videos, it's verbal abuse.  That's right according to this study:
children who endure more being yelled at by parents have larger auditory association cortex.  Of course, before you think that maybe you're not scolding enough, realize that bigger is not always better, particularly in this case, where these increases in gray matter are associated with increased anxiety and anxiety/depressive disorders NOT with intelligence.
