Pruning starts near the time of birth & is completed at end of adolescents. At birth, the brain consists of ~86 billion neurons. The infant brain will grow 5x in size by adulthood. 2 factors contribute to this: the growth of synaptic connections between neurons, & the myelination of nerve fibers. A decrease in synapses is seen after adolescence (synaptic pruning), & ~50% do not survive until adulthood. Pruning is influenced by environmental factors and is widely thought to represent…
