We are all different, due to diversity of our brains. Have you noticed that some people are lefties, other people are righties? Have you the opportunity to work with people who are diagnosed as having attention deficit and hyperactivity, alcoholics, dyslexics, people who have photographic memory, depressed people?Have you an acquaintance who has an autistic child, or who has adopted an autistic child?
The brain is one of the master pieces of creation, however when affected by foreign substances such as lead poisoning, this causes damage to the prefrontal lobes. Researchers at Pittsburgh University have discovered a link between children with lead posoning and children who have been convicted for legally delinquent behavior.Studies are underway to see if there is the same kind of correlation between lead poisoning and children diagnosed as afflicted by ADHD.
There is a misconception about the quality and quantity of our brain cells. People use to think that our brain cells had their peak when we were born. We have learn that our brain development happens after birth, well after birth. We could say that our brain is in “evolution”. After we are born the brain continues to grow and develop. The frontal cortex part of the brain according to some researchers reaches its growth completeness when the person reaches his or her mid-twenties, could even be later. So considering these facts, we can understand why we make poor judgements between the ages of 18 and 26.
