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? What are the roles of genetics and environment in brain development? This episode traces the formation of the infant brain through the age of one, the period during which it is most open to molding through external influence and experience.
