(University of Toronto) New research by University of Toronto neuroscientists sheds light on links between brain growth and sensations experienced by animals soon after birth. The researchers have identified a form of neural feedback in zebrafish that could link development of the body with that of the brain. The findings suggest mobility restrictions or insufficient sensory stimuli impact the production of new brain cells and brain development. The likely outcome is that learning and cognition are negatively affected.
