... development difficulties that manifest till adulthood.It was an original research carried out on 24 pre-school children. More children were neglected than abused. The research fortifies the fact that excellent parent-child social relationship is significant in a childs language development.Knudsen, Eric I. Sensitive Periods in the Development of the Brain and Behavior. Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience 16.8 (2006) 1412-1425. Print.Brain development is thought to have a developmental period referred to as the sensitive period when the neuronal tissues are very sensitive to information provided through experience. When such information is important for normal development and permanently alters performance, the period is called critical period. Knudsen deeply explains these periods and the impact of limited exposure to experiential influences.The research augments the presence of a critical period hypothesized by Maya Pines when cognitive and linguistic development is optimal in a child. This explains why poor or inadequate learning experience during this period has detrimental effects on a childs cognitive and language development.Pines, Maya. The Civilizing of Genie. Teaching English through the Disciplines Psychology Ed. Loretta F. Kasper. Universal JournalAYJW. 1997. Web. 28 Nov. 2013. Pines gives an example of a person who experienced a psychologically, physically and nutritionally unhealthy childhood and describes how these affected the persons cognitive and linguistic development. The person in question, Genie, did not substantially learn to communicate after puberty. Pines attributes this to her age which was past the critical period of acquisition of language.Maya Pines has written several medical articles and books that have been peer reviewed. The author cites psychologists and scientists who researched on Genies post-childhood ability to learn a language. It can be concluded that a person best learns to communicate during childhood. Past childhood the language brain centers atrophy making it difficult for an adolescent or adult to learn to communicate effectively.
