  45. an active sleep state assoc. w/ dreaming in adults; characterized by quick, jerky eye mvts under closed lids
    REM sleep
  46. a quiet or deep sleep state characterized by absence of motor activity or eye mvts and by regular, slow brain waves, breathing and heart rate
    Non-REM sleep
  47. True/False

    Hormones play a crucial role in sexual differentiation

    All human fetuses can develop either male or female genitalia, depending on the presence or absence of testosterone
  48. transforms the embryo’s unspecialized stem cells into different types of cells (specialization)
    cell differentiation
  49. genetically programmed cell death, also enables prenatal development

  51. _____ promotes the normal development of the palate and aids in the maturation of the digestive system.
    Swallowing amniotic fluid
  52. Prenatal visual experience is negligible.

    It responds to sounds from at least the 6th month of gestation.
    Sensory structures in early development
  53. T/F
    Newborn infants have been shown to recognize rhymes and stories presented before birth.

    Newborns also prefer smells, tastes, and sound patterns are familiar because of prenatal exposure.
