Thank you for answering my question.

Ok, I am using information from trusted child development and brain sites and we do not get the frontal lobe of the brain until it starts forming at about age 18. That does not mean that we do not have a brain, just this part of it.
Children wouldn't speak, remember, learn anything, walk, or have personalities if they didn't have frontal lobes.
A very brief summary of a medical overview of frontal lobe development- http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23257954

Your first link admits the lobes already exist.
PubMed is a much better source than YouTube or news articles.
Patty explains it for laymen here- http://hubpages.com/family/Brain-Biology-Human-Bab...
So the youtubes from PBS are no good in your opinion? The article that you are says: A Partially Connected Frontal Lobe. Maybe it was there but it is not developing until 18 yrs old. It is slow and consequences are not rational yet. Thanks
Please read Patty Inglish's hub. She's digested the scientific information so laymen can understand it. It even has graphics. Yes, scientific, peer-reviewed papers are more reputable than PBS and the video doesn't say what you think it does anyway.
PBS is done by founders and medical research teams and the like. They have their own video's. I have and am a folloer of Pattie for 6 years. I will read her article.
Kylyssa, I went to her hub and read it and I am appalled at the things that you said to her about me. Her hub does not answer my question and neither have you.
Did you or did you not respond with a YouTube link in response to a pubmed link that answers your question? Pop science tv shows aren't on the level of peer-reviewed papers. Didn't you utterly reject the idea that infants have frontal lobes?
Kylyssa, I was talking about the the prefontal cortex. I did provide some videos but I am not doing what you say that I am doing. Bottom line: U did not answer my ?. U only want to argue about information and the uses thereof. NOT what I asked.
The paper to the summary I linked answers your question, giving the various changes to the frontal lobes from infancy to mature adulthood, myelinization, etc, in percentages by age. I apologize if I was rude. I am the "ass" in Aspergers too often.
