While to this point we focussed primarily on the typical developmental path for human brain development, there is great interest in using measures of brain development as early biomarkers for later emerging conditions. patterns of brain evolution, (b) compara-tive assessment of brain anatomy across species, (c) the fossil history of human-brain evolution, and (d) brain structure/function relationships. 0000133919 00000 n Each cortical neuron has on average 7000 synaptic connections to other neurons, resulting in a total of 0.15 quadrillion synapses and more than 150,000 km of myelinated nerve fibers (Pakkenberg et al., 2003).

Their development is prolonged beyond birth and it is not completed structurally nor neurochemically until age of 20 years. 0000003709 00000 n ### INTRODUCTION The brain is responsible for cognition, behavior, and much of what makes us uniquely human. Modern humans have large and globular brains that distinguish them from their extinct Homo relatives. The human brain is one of the most complex systems on earth. Decades later, degenerative phenomena begin to be evident, that little by little will drive us to death. trailer 0000004152 00000 n 0000107052 00000 n 0000166630 00000 n 81 0 obj <> endobj ;'��Qy&C�x�#`+�YvEb����]x/�נA���K=!�w'��G�ghSo,�Ej>���*d���3sB/��om|�.�����WF�� ��Jl3 �,-zd%*�G����̆Vsܒ �ON�� u�u�d�*$���r��Ztg#�[Q.���'xAr����-6* �o! *7H��H��pc��Z2�&Pq+�6�+�a�(�i.F�'�a_59Z�'dʕ�]��%fkք'M簎��s$�jbWV��M�Z(/���y�3�RoKw����r���s�3�r9=mdp������6lGK`î�Y�>�`Y}^o֛�~c����s1v��k�XM�V#J���7�l�p~�/�А�~ � �-lG@ �#�!�ڮ ^�7�Y�e�V���� j��"��L��k��Z ����1e�ľDǂ?��;��8i)�4�ȴЭ��)����$�\�DUμ[o�V���f`����Cq���?C)Rf�'T���Tb}7�CD�lG����z��7�e���߭�cN����X� "��(Q��qH' �k�G>�&Ɖ�n6>pDI��[R�;�Y�-cs���(Mn�H�^�I�M8�E_Eףl!�e��w�h��ا�@BVZ�u���Vsf�\�^��E�Ƣ��`��|$!

Human brain development is a protracted process that begins in the third gestational week (GW) with the differentiation of the neural progenitor cells and extends at least through late adolescence, arguably throughout the lifespan.

The average adult human brain has a volume of 1350 cm3, a total surface area of 1820 cm2, and an average cortical thickness of 2.7 mm (Pakkenberg and Gundersen, 1997).
