Q&A from the "What is Learning?" video series - Spatio-temporal Dynamics of Brain Development - Dr. Sanja Budisavljevic.
During this podcast, Dr. Budisavljevic will discuss the following questions (listening time : 8 minutes)
- What factors influence cortical thinning and rates of grey matter changes?
- What behaviour development in children is shaped by myelination trajectory?
- Does more myelination result in better learning outcomes?
- What happens if an infant/child does not receive optimal nutrition during this critical window? Is there an opportunity later for the brain to catch up or are future cognitive outcomes programmed from early life?
