Resource Spotlight: Brain Architecture


Early experiences affect the development of brain architecture, which provides the foundation for all future learning, behavior, and health. Just as a weak foundation compromises the quality and strength of a house, adverse experiences early in life can impair brain architecture, with negative effects lasting into adulthood.

Who are these resources for?

All adults will benefit from the Center on the Developing Child's accessible information about the science of early brain development.  Read the overview on the concept of Brain Architecture first, then check out their library of resources on brain architecture. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, child care provider, early childhood educator, early intervention provider, or parent educator, you're sure to find a fascinating and useful resource!
