Brain cells are actually well designed to make these connections.
Imagine this group of immature cells up there in an immature brain how do we create
this thing we call the brain? Our brains are so far advanced over a computer, as much as I
love computers and wouldnt be standing up here without the help of technology; our
brains still amaze me. What we do know is by these chemicals sending signals down the
brain and by the brain being used, you create tracks.
Now one of those chemicals just happens to be serotonin. So I go back to
the statement, helping the brain work if you can do it correctly, and Ill redefine
correctly by low dosages, not trying to control a childs brain but just trying to
help it. If you can do that I believe very strongly that you give your child a chance to
have a healthier brain than if you dont help those connections form and you do not
help the brain work.
Evidence also supports the idea that both animal and human brains
increase about fourfold in weight from infancy to adulthood. They do this by developing
new connections, by maturing. So what we need to do is help your childrens brains
mature now while there is still a chance.
