Discussion 3: Transient ExuberanceDiscussion 3: Transient Exuberance

The First Two Years

Discuss thoroughly the process of transient exuberance and pruning in the infant brain.  What are some factors that would help support transient exuberance?  What might impede it?

Why is the pruning event both important and concerning?

Explain the difference between experience-expectant brain functions and experience-dependent brain functions.  Give an example of each.
