Early Childhood
is a stage human development. It generally includes toddlerhood and some time afterwards.
The brain continues to develop after birth…
It doubles in weight after 6 months at which time it weighs about half that of the adult brain…

The neurons are nourished by Glial Cells which are responsible for the increase in brain size.
These Glial Cells outnumber neurons 10 to 1 but are smaller thatn neurons , thus , making up only about half of the brain tissue…

Myelination of nerve fibers grows at different paces for different parts of the brain.
The sensory and motor areas are the primary sites of brain growth during the first spurt , associated with the noted improvements in fine motor skills and eye-handcoordination.
Myelination continues through middles childhood in particular the reticular formation and the nerves linking the reticular formation to the frontal lobes.
The particular kind of concentration , referred to as selective attention is a result of the continuous myelineation that allows the frontal lobes and reticular formation work together.
Selective attention allows children to focus cognitive ability on the elements of a problem or situation.
