Anything be Done to Help with the Dysfunction
Of the Reticular Activating System?
(1) neural building materials, (2) precursors to neurotransmitter
and (3) an appropriate fund of neural buffers are supplied,
neural networks can be created and forged quickly to meet
the increasing demands of heavy neural traffic; especially
in the prepubescent individual.
If given the chance,
individual neurons can grow at a rate of 3-5mm per day! There
are roughly 100 billion neurons in the brain to be developed,
along with an astonishing 900 billion supporting glial ("helper")
cells - a grand total of one trillion (1,000,000,000,000)
cells to be nurtured - that is 10 times the number of stars
estimated to be in our galaxy!
