The Infant Brain! At the time of birth, the brain of an infant is only 25 percent of the size of an adult brain. In the next 2 years of life, the brain will grow by 55%, reaching 80% of its adult size !
.
The early stages of development are strongly affected by genetic factors; for example, genes direct newly formed neurons to their correct locations in the brain and play a role in how they interact. However, although they arrange the basic wiring of the brain, genes do not design the brain completely. Instead, genes allow the brain to fine-tune itself according to the input it receives from the environment. A child’s senses report to the brain about her environment and experiences, and this input stimulates neural activity. Speech sounds, for example, stimulate activity in language-related brain regions. If the amount of input increases (if more speech is heard) synapses between neurons in that area will be activated more often. Repeated use strengthens a synapse. Synapses that are rarely used remain weak and are more likely to be eliminated in the pruning process. Synapse strength contributes to the connectivity and efficiency of the networks that support learning, memory, and other cognitive abilities. At birth, the number of synapses per neuron is 2,500, but by age two or three, it's about 15,000 per neuron!

It is hard to stay committed to working hard and studying when the rest of the world is having fun or watching game of thrones. The reality is, being a doctor is not easy. It takes sacrifice. It takes long nights. It takes relentless studying and self discipline. .
If you are having trouble staying motivated - write down your goals then write down three things you have to do to accomplish each of those goals. .
