Synopsis

The Secret Life of the Brain, Part 3: The Teenage Brain - A World of Their Own
The Secret Life of the Brain, Part 1: The Baby's Brain - Wider Than The Sky
With its billions of cells linked by trillions of connections, the human brain is the most complex thing in the universe. Within weeks of conception, fetal brain cells develop at the rate of 500,000 per minute. From birth to age one an infant's brain is most easily molded by external influences and experiences. The first hour of "The Baby's Brain," volume one in a series on The Secret Life of the Brain, focuses on the formation of the infant brain, examining such factors as brain organization and the roles of genetics and environment on brain development. ~ Kathryn Tamms, Rovi

The Secret Life of the Brain, Part 2: The Child's Brain - Syllable From Sound
Part two in The Secret Life of the Brain series explores the development of the brain in young children, most specifically the phenomenon of language, whose explosion in children after age one most dramatically illustrates the brain at work. But how do we learn to talk and read? Whereas linguistic activity is limited to the left side of the brain in adults, the same activity activates the entire brain in very young children. What happens when the physical development of the brain is compromised? And where do language disorders like dyslexia have their roots? ~ Kathryn Tamms, Rovi
