How do we learn new things? Many of us think that learning begins at school. We say that ‘children come to school to learn’. The truth is that children have been learning from the time they were born. Over the past several decades, neuroscience research has established that the brain learns by constantly rewiring itself – giving up redundant connections that are not used frequently, while strengthening the connections that we access often. This happens to a very large extent in childhood, when our brains are most receptive to learning.
