Development of Brain in Kids – Five things you can do

Talk by Dr. Anas K A, Consultant Pediatrician & Adolescent Specialist

കുട്ടികളുടെ ബുദ്ധിവികാസം വർധിപ്പിക്കുവാൻ നിർബന്ധമായും ചെയ്യേണ്ട അഞ്ചു കാര്യങ്ങൾ

At birth, your baby’s brain contains 100 billion neurons (as many as there are stars in the Milky Way!). During his first years, he will grow trillions of brain-cell connections, called neural synapses. Pretty impressive, right?

But here’s the thing: The rule for brain wiring is to use it or lose it. Synapses that are not “wired together” through stimulation are pruned and lost during a child’s school years. Although an infant’s brain does have some neurological hard-wiring, such as the ability to learn any language, it is more pliable and more vulnerable than a grown-up’s brain. And, amazingly, a toddler’s brain has twice as many neural connections as an adult’s.

When you provide loving, language-enriched experiences for your baby, you are giving his brain’s neural connections and pathways more opportunities to become wired together. In turn, he will acquire rich language, reasoning, and planning skills. These easy tips, stimulating books and supervised, interactive activities will help make sure your young child’s brain is primed for years of learning ahead.
