Neuroscience For Kids - Brain Development

Neuroscience For Kids - Brain Development: "The brain grows at an amazing rate during development. At times during brain development, 250,000 neurons are added every minute! At birth, almost all the neurons that the brain will ever have are present. However, the brain continues to grow for a few years after birth. By the age of 2 years old, the brain is about 80% of the adult size."

I think its interesting that feeling is the first sense to be developed and that by the age of 2 years the brain is 80% of the adult size.I now understand why the first few years of life are so critical in leaning.
