  • Brain Development


We were born with fantastic neural networks in place. In fact we create them as we experience life, as we grow up. In the womb the foetal brain is already fast at work. Its neurons multiply at an awesome rate, to about 200 billion after the first few months. They are in fact over produced through a biological insurance policy. About half of these cells simply die off. For the half that survives, the job is just beginning because compared with other animals, humans are born extremely immature. As adorable as human babies may be, they need years of development before they can skilfully negotiate their way through the world. Our most important asset is our brain. From birth, it takes on the world with an almost explosive force rapidly forming trillions of neural connections. What forces guide this developing network? The answer is everything around us. The brain is not a static, hardwired piece of machinery as once was thought. It is a dynamic creation that constantly shapes and reshapes itself. Our genes supply the parameters for how neurons connect. They lay down a foundation of resourses. But in large measure, the neural connections, the basis of all brain activity, are modelled by the things we encountered in the outside world. The environment physically changes our brain. Overtime, as a child has experiences, the brain develops territories. It draws certain neural maps for functions like vision, language, muscle movement and hearing. But the brain sets deadlines for creating these neural maps. If we are not exposed to language or vision or sounds at crucial periods in our development, those neural circuits are reassigned to other tasks and our ability to speak, see or hear is forever limited. A child's drawing may seem simple, but the process of putting these rudimentary images on paper may help the child to form neural connections of enormous complexity and shape the way he sees the world for life.

Sending the available information to the brain through our Senses, storing in Brain and retrieving it in the required form is the process of converting the information into knowledge. There are three important steps in acquiring knowledge. Firstly how efficiently our senses collect and send the information to the brain, secondly how best our brain is able to store the information and thirdly how fast our brain processes the stored information to make an action.

CMA-TBDP stimulates the basic senses of the children. The balanced growth of auditory and visual senses is a major achievement of a TBDP trained child. A fully developed and functional neural network in brain helps to store the information, process and retrieve it in to the required form with amazing speed. Most people think of memory skills as just our ability to recall. However the skills that our brain uses to actually store the information play perhaps the biggest part of being able to remember.
