Epigentics And Neuroplasticity Control Brain Development Right From The Start


A study published in the journal Neuron, illustrates the effect of environmental inputs (epigentics) on the developing brain’s neuroplasticity. Exposure to just 20 minutes of intensive visual stimulation during development led to enhanced visual acuity and higher sensitivity to finer and smaller visual targets than non-conditioned controls. Employing time-lapse imaging to chart changes in brain [...]
