OBJECTIVE To review general principles of brain development, identify basic principles of brain plasticity, and discuss factors that influence brain development and plasticity. METHOD A literature review of relevant English-language manuscripts on brain development and plasticity was conducted. RESULTS Brain development progresses through a series of stages beginning with neurogenesis and progressing to neural migration, maturation, synaptogenesis, pruning, and myelin formation. Eight basic… Expand
Cognitive and Brain Development: Executive Function, Piaget, and the Prefrontal Cortex
Piaget was the first psychologist to systematically investigate cognitive development by proposing the theory of constructivism and thereby creating a new approach to examine learning. He stated thatExpand
Investigation of brain structure in the 1-month infant
TLDR
It is suggested that asymmetry and sexual dimorphism are present at birth, and males have larger total brain volume and volumes differ by sex in regionally specific brain regions, after correcting for total brainVolume. Expand
The relationship between pubertal hormones and brain plasticity: Implications for cognitive training in adolescence
TLDR
The present review examines how hormonal changes associated with pubertal onset may modulate plasticity in higher-order cognition during adolescence and builds on existing age-comparative cognitive training studies to explore how the potential for change in neural resources and behavioral repertoire differs across age groups. Expand
Early-Life Nutrition and Cognitive Development: Imaging Approaches.
TLDR
The team has developed strategies that enable imaging of typically developing children from birth to teens without sedation that will most likely substantially enhance the ability to rigorously characterize the interplay between nutrients and early brain development. Expand
Neurogenesis in the adult hippocampus: history, regulation, and prospective roles
TLDR
This article explores current advancements in adult hippocampal neurogenesis by presenting its history and evolution and studying its association with neural plasticity and describes the intracellular, extracellular, pathological, and environmental factors involved in its regulation. Expand

TLDR
Key factors that influence brain structure and function, and mechanisms through which experience impacts risk for mental health disorders presented in this Special Issue are linked with suggestions for future directions in child and youth mental health research, policy and practice. Expand
Early childhood development and skills across the life-course through the lens of the developing brain
TLDR
The policy-relevant findings from brain sciences research can greatly enhance the ability to carry out cost-effective policies that foster human development over the life-course, eliminate extreme poverty, and improve shared prosperity. Expand
Prenatal and Early Postnatal Influences on Neurodevelopment: The Role of Epigenetics
TLDR
Adolescence represents a time window during which the consequences of early stress exposure can be counteracted and the brain continues to mature during adolescence, when a reorganization of the highest order associative areas occurs by an intense synaptic pruning. Expand
The role of astrocyte‐mediated plasticity in neural circuit development and function
TLDR
A brief historical perspective on the understanding of astrocytes in the nervous system is provided, and the latest advances on the role of astroglia in regulating circuit plasticity and function during nervous system development and homeostasis are reviewed. Expand
Mapping White Matter Microstructure in the One Month Human Brain
TLDR
This work utilizes quantitative techniques of diffusion tensor imaging and neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging to investigate neonatal white matter microstructure in 104 infants and suggests that characteristics of white matterMicrostructure are already underway in the weeks immediately following birth.

Brain plasticity and behavior.
TLDR
It is now clear that experience produces multiple, dissociable changes in the brain including increases in dendritic length, increases (or decreases) in spine density, synapse formation, increased glial activity, and altered metabolic activity. Expand

The publication of this handbook testifies to the rapid growth of developmental cognitive neuroscience as a distinct field. Brain imaging and recording technologies, along with well-definedExpand
Brain Plasticity and Behavior
Although the brain was once seen as a rather static organ, it is now clear that the organization of brain circuitry is constantly changing as a function of experience. These changes are referred toExpand
Prenatal bystander stress induces neuroanatomical changes in the prefrontal cortex and hippocampus of developing rat offspring
TLDR
It is found that prenatal bystander stress significantly altered the complexity and length of dendritic arbor, the density of excitatory spines and the actual volume of neuronal and glial cell numbers in the mPFC, OFC, and CA1 of developing rat offspring. Expand

Neurogenesis in adulthood: a possible role in learning
TLDR
Several lines of evidence suggesting that adult-generated neurons are involved in hippocampal-dependent learning are examined, including the variables that modulate hippocampal neurogenesis in adulthood and their relation to learning and memory. Expand
Motor cortex injury has different behavioral and anatomical effects in early and late adolescence.
TLDR
There appears to be an age-related pattern of morphological and behavioral changes in response to cortical injury in the early and late adolescent periods leading to better functional recovery from later injuries, much as is seen in human children. Expand
[Structural plasticity associated with drugs addiction].
TLDR
Evidence is summarized that, indeed, exposure to amphetamine, cocaine, nicotine or morphine produced persistent changes in the structure of dendrites and dendritic spines on cells in relevant brain regions, and the potential molecular mechanisms of these changes were approached. Expand
Experience and brain development.
This article considers how experience can influence the developing and mature brain and proposes a new categorization scheme based upon the type of information stored and the brain mechanisms thatExpand
Hippocampal neuroplasticity induced by early-life stress: Functional and molecular aspects
TLDR
Using a novel immature-rodent model, the deleterious consequences of chronic early-life 'psychological' stress on hippocampus-dependent cognitive tasks are described and the cellular mechanisms involved are reviewed. Expand
