IQ And The Pressure To PerformStreaming Video - 2006
From prenatal Mozart to hothousing, the debate surrounding intelligence and how it is best cultivated is a controversial one. But is there really an optimal window of opportunity for neural development? This program invites John T. Bruer, author of The Myth of the First Three Years; Colin Blakemore, of Oxford University; UCLA's Paul Thompson; Bill Greenough, of the University of Illinois; and David Elkind, professor of child development at Tufts University, among others, to critically examine the myth of critical periods and to look at what the latest scientific research indicates about how the brain develops in the early years and beyond.
