Responses to The Secret Life of the Brain, Episode 1 Please respond to the questions below. You may answer directly below each question on this study sheet. Understanding the brain’s development is necessary to gain insight into both early and late development of all kinds. Given the information in this video and your comprehension of it, respond to the following questions. 1. The video showed two infants that experienced challenges in their development (both pre and postnatal). Give two specific examples from the video of how the network of connections made in utero influence a child’s or adult’s development. How are those connections specifically made and what can specifically disrupt them? 2. What is brain plasticity? What specific example from the video demonstrated the brain’s amazing ability to restructure itself? What was the outcome? 3. Give two examples from the video of how lost connections may affect us both in the short and long term. Is this a short-term or long-term impact? Why? 4. What two specific items from the movie surprised you the most and why? How is this information useful to you? 5. How can we do to make new dendritic connections as we age? What have you specifically learned from this video and your textbook about dendrites? What examples from your own life show dendrite growth? What does “use it or lose it” mean? What is an example of “use it or lose it” in your own life? Link to the video below:
