Dr. Jay Giedd's Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
I found it interesting to read Dr. Jay Giedd’s thoughts on brain development. Within the corpus callosum of the brain, teenagers undergo great changes in language learning and associative thinking. In recent years Violet, has been able to have a wider range of conversations. Major changes in brain development occur in the cerebellum during adolescence, including physical coordination and the ability to process mental tasks. Violet’s ability to play piano, sing and desire to play an additional instrument is due to changes within the cerebellum allowing her to process higher thought- mathematics, philosophy, decision making, social skills and in this case music (Spinks).
