Learning, a story about brain plasticity and stabilization

This is a rather difficult piece of research that took me some work to grasp, but very interesting. Throughout our lives, our brains adapt to what we learn and memorize. The brain is made up of complex networks of neurons and synapses that are constantly re-configured, sometimes people than think about brain plasticity. However, in order… Read More Learning, a story about brain plasticity and stabilization

By carefully watching nearly a hundred hours of video showing mother rats protecting, warming, and feeding their young pups, and then matching up what they saw… Read More Study shows how ‘good mothering’ hardwires infant brain
