At birth, the human infant brain weighs less than one pound. As infants become children and then adults, that tiny piece of tissue grows and expands to three times its birth size and is responsible for housing our entire experience as a human being. Every bit of knowledge, every cognitive capacity, and every thought humans have is a result of what is and isn’t stored by the billions of neurons in our brain. I find that amazing! As a graduate student, I get to study the development of the functional specialization and organization of the human brain with Rebecca Saxe and Nancy Kanwisher as my advisors!
