Featured Video: Experiences Build Brain Architecture, YouTube video by Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University. This video is part one of a three-part series titled “Three Core Concepts in Early Development.” The series depicts how advances in neuroscience, molecular biology, and genomics now give us a much better understanding of how early experiences are built into our bodies and brains, for better or for worse.
