Just a few nuggets of information. These days there is far more attention given to the aged brain than to the mid to late 20s one. ------ The brain grows at an amazing rate during development. At times during brain development, 250,000 neurons are added every minute!
The brain continues to grow for a few years after a person is born and by the age of 2 years old, the brain is about 80% of the adult size.
Like the rest of your body, your brain changes with each passing year. From the time we are infants, our brains are adapting, learning, making memories and more.
Once we hit our late twenties, the brain's aging process begins and we begin losing neurons—the cells that make up the brain and nervous system.
