Brain plasticity is a fundamental part of children’s neurological development.
During their first years of life, children’s brain plasticity is greater than at any other stage of life.
As neuropsychologist Natalia Gómez Muñoz explains, “They learn new things quickly and replace what they previously knew with it, activating new patterns and combinations in their brains by being and doing what they want.”
Proper cognitive stimulation in children allows them to develop and strengthen their abilities, skills and strengths. “They can improve their ability to pay attention, their memories and their ability to learn,” Gómez adds.
