Brain Development in Babies

"Babies are busy 'wiring' their brains. They are born with all the brain cells (neurons) they need, but they are not 'intelligent' as we understand that term...they perceive but don't think the way we so because they can't retain images or symbols in their minds. Babies construct intelligence through experience, welding sparsely connected neurons into densely interconnected pathways."
-- Jim Greenman, educator
