comment Why does neuroplasticity decrease in adults?
@ArtemKaznatcheev I've been wondering about this for a while now and although I have no background in this at all, one thing that struck me as important is the relationship between learning and neurogenesis. If neurogenesis can be increased with learning, isn't it possible that as children, as everything is new to us, learning becomes a constant process and perhaps causes exponential neurogenesis? Although learning a second language is difficult, it's nowhere near as difficult as learning our first language, which I assume would cause a significant difference in levels of neurogenesis.
