What Makes Us Unique?
We always wonder why some people can always achieve and outperform others. What makes them special?
The uniqueness of human individuals is the result of the uniqueness of the brain of every individual. At birth a baby’s brain contains virtually all the nerve cells it will ever have, but the pattern of wiring between them is not yet established. It is the sensorimotor experience after the birth, from age zero to three, which creates a blueprint for the assembly of a child’s brain. Depending on the type of parenting and early stimulation provided, we end up with individual minds whose patterns of emotion and thought are unique.
According to neuroscience, the uniqueness of human brains develops initially through the first connection of the brain circuits, in which intrinsic mechanisms lay down the neural pathways. But the construction of the nervous system of humans is also influenced by our interactions with the environment which produce patterns of neural activity that shape the brain circuits. In other words, our inherited genetic map determines the connections of the neurons of our brains initially, but subsequently, these connections are modified through the sensorimotor interactions of individuals, for instance, the repetition of activity and early stimulation which help the brain fortify neuron connections. Therefore, the differences in genes and environments make the brain of every individual unique. With the right stimulation at the right time, as a parent, your can help to increase your child’s brain power from the very start.
