Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience
A review of literature regarding developmental cognitive neuroscience will include how the

brain’s plasticity has the ability to recover when sensory deprivation has occurred. Looking at
mirror neurons and their capacities, and how research subjects including animals and humans model
behavior, that an individual has the capacity to change and modify their behavior in the face of a
negative consequences they may have been exposed to in the early cognitive learning
environment.Outline
I.

Brain plasticity and Neural Development
A. Mirror Neurons and their Capacities
B. Genetic Predisposition

II.

Influence of genetic predisposition
A. Modeling of behavior
B. Effects of socioeconomic status
C. Early sensory deprivation

III.

Intervention Strategies Affecting Positive Future Growth and Outcomes
How brain plasticity can contribute to strategies enforcing growth when developmental deficits
have occurred.
