Now the human body is made up of cells, we all know that. So is the brain.
What is actually astonishing is that a child is born with 100 billion brain cells. Perhaps
this is why they say we can lose a few here or there and be OK, but it doesnt mean
we can lose a lot of brain cells. These cells are not connected in networks when a child
is born. The networks formed by brain cells are crucial to, among other things, allow
thinking and learning to take place. A few slides ago, when I said the only thing
important to me at this point with your children is cognition, if you can get the brain
working, then everything else can be helped with therapy and with other aids. If that
brain is still sitting at idle, youre not going to win in the long run, except in
very rare, very unusual circumstances.
