At age 11 or 12, the brain experiences a wave of synapse formation (similar to the growth spurt seen in infants), followed in adolescence by a process of synaptic pruning (much like pruning the weaker branches of a tree). Consequently, the “use it or lose it” principle becomes critical in adolescence.
