Document Summary

Matters on general cognitive skills(intelligence, genetics) + practice. 10,000 hour rule , or 10 year rule. To be very good at something it is said in general you need this much practice. Ie: chess masters (11000 hours), classical musicians: about the same. Nature-nurture: among humans (individual differences from different countries etc) Nature; nativism (what is innate - people who support this say nature is more important in development) nurture; empiricist (are who you are because of experiences: we are different from other animals because of culture) Nature: change comes from maturation (independent of experiences comes from biological changes) Nurture: change comes from learning (exposed to different situations and you learn and develop) 3rd month: half a million neurons per minute. Fetus makes more neurons than needed - brain gets rid of neurons and synapses that are not useful. Process varies by area of the brain (occipital maxes at 4-5 months, prefrontal maxes at 12 months)
