The brain has a very high capacity at the beginning of life and it chooses what it wants to remember as the child grows. The brain will not use its total capacity as we grow older and keeps what our environment teaches us to keep. At adolescents major changes occur as the teenager is exposed to peer pressure to change our former beliefs and reject what our parents taught us. as the teenager becomes an adult the brain adjust once again to the work environment and starts to accept the responsibilities of the work and family role in our lives

Synopsis- Have you ever wondered what your brain can do – exactly? Why we feel what we feel? What makes us ‘go’? Get ready to take a trip through your brain with this National Geographic Kids book! What I Thought- This is a really fascinating book! I enjoyed reading it. It presents the information in a fun way and makes you want to keep reading. There are new topics on each page, usually under the topic listed at the beginning of the section. (ex: Emotions). There are good activities throughout the book to tickle your brain and are just plain fun to do. The book has pictures through-out it that make the book reminiscent of a scrapbook-type collage. I sincerely recommend this book to everyone interested in the operations of the brain. *NOTE* I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
