It was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).While some researchers have suggested that fetuses yawn, others have disagreed and claim it is simple mouth opening.But the new research clearly distinguished ‘yawning’ from ‘non-yawn mouth opening’ based on the duration of mouth opening. The researchers did this by using the 4D video footage to closely examine all events where a mouth stretch occurred in the fetus.Using their newly developed criteria, the research team found that over half of the mouth openings observed in the study were classed as yawns… Read the full story »
