Hidden beneath our everyday world — on the infinitesimal scale of atomic and subatomic particles — is a strange and elusive realm. It is a Lewis Carroll-like place where ghostly particles pop in and out of existence, swirling electrons occupy two positions at once, and objects possess dual natures — they can be both waves and particles simultaneously.

It may come as a shock to parents facing the daily chaos of toddler life, but the brain's complexity peaks around age 3.
The number of connections between neurons virtually explodes in our first few years. After that the brain starts pruning away unused portions of this vast electrical network, slimming to roughly half the number by the time we reach adulthood. The overprovisioning of the toddler brain allows us to acquire language and develop fine motor skills. But what we don't use, we lose.
