The Latest Information on Brain Growth in the Earliest Years

October 2016

The Gesell Program offers the latest information on brain growth in the earliest years, in this curated collection of current research. Importantly, we give a brief summary of the findings presented in the article What More Has Been Learned? The Science of Early Childhood Development Since Neurons to Neighborhoods, published in January 2016. In the 15 years since the publication of From Neurons to Neighborhoods, scientists have learned a lot more about the developing brain, the growth of thinking and learning, the effects of early stress, and the importance of relationships to young children’s development.
