Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Myth of the First Three Years: A New Understanding of Early Brain Development and Lifelong Learning (ISBN 978-0-7432-4260-8, 1999) is a book written by John Bruer. The book explains the overextrapolations of basic critical period neuroscience research "resulting in a potentially disproportionate channeling of resources toward early childhood education."This is fundamentally different than the sensitive period, which is a more extended period of time during development when an individual is more receptive to specific types of environmental stimuli, usually because nervous system development is especially sensitive to certain sensory stimuli. This makes the individual more predisposed to learning.show more
