關於Nature 還是 Nurture 這個問題

這是一個科學家每天都在解答的難題, 到底是經歷引導人的發展,還是天生的條件引導人的發展. 我們試著用人類導航能力來解釋吧.

新生嬰兒在前三年的時候,大腦中的Synapse 比他們成年後有的Synapse多近兩倍. 不是說新生嬰兒的大腦還在發展嗎, 怎麼會有比成年人還發達的結構? 這些Synapses 其實在人的頭三年會經歷很多Blooming and Pruning. 從外界接收到的信息, 例如聲音, 會一直刺激傳送到大腦的路徑. 路徑同時間亦會因為不斷的刺激而更加強壯. Synapses 作為大腦中信息的傳媒, 在這路徑中,自然亦然也變得活躍而穩定下來. 而其他沒有多用到或是沒用到的Synapse 也就會退化然後死亡. 經過這個Blooming and Pruning 的過程, 小孩子大腦中留下了最強壯穩健的信息傳達網絡, 對以後的所有的學習起了一個穩定的基礎。 8 more words
