Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Developmental processes of the brain have long been considered the last frontier by scientists as well as educators. There has been much speculation concerning how and when the mind grows and if intellectual growth appears at the same time the skull and brain are physiologically and neurologically growing. Prior to recent research many educators assumed that learning, or intellectual advancement, occurred in an almost continuous manner. Educators felt children built skill upon skill and constantly moved from one stage of cognitive development to the next higher level of cognitive development. Traditionally, educational systems have been based on this concept of continuous intellectual development.
