What’s Going On In Your Child’s Brain, Anyway? [Infographic]

You may think that brain development exists on a steady upward curve that climbs ever higher throughout life.  You might be surprised to know a graph of brain development would look more like a stock market crash.  Neural pathways form at an astonishing rate during childhood, then excess pathways disappear after the brain becomes fully developed.

By the age of 23, nearly half of a person’s neural pathways have been pruned away, and the brain is considered to be fully matured at age 25.  Isn’t it comforting to know that you can already vote, buy alcohol, and assume massive amounts of student loan debt all well before your brain is finished forming?

Check out this infographic for more about how the brain forms.  You might be surprised at some of the facts and figures.  You may also take solace in the fact that despite pruning of your unused neural pathways, you can always make new ones.
