The Baby’s Brain
Less than a month after conception, brain cells are developing at the astonishing rate of 500,000 per minute. The brain will ultimately comprise billions of cells linked by trillions of connections, the most complex thing in the universe. How does it organize itself?

For years, science has suggested that we lose vast numbers of brain cells as we grow older; now it turns out that this is not true -- in fact, healthy brains continue to produce new neurons well into the 70s.
