several photographs of neural circuity in the brain. From the left the pictures show us the neural circuity of a newborn, then a 3 month old, 15 month old, and 2 year old. As the child ages, their brain’s wiring becomes increasingly more complex and interconnected

Mindfulness and Neuroplasticity - see Daniel Siegel's work also and his book Mindsight is brilliant
