    No. When you are very young your brain is creating a million different connections. If you do not use those connections they disappear and once you reach a certain age new connections are not created.

    This is why it is important for parents to interact and teach their children as early as possible helping them have a full range of connections.

    There are cases of "feral children" children who are abused and without social interaction that when they reach teen years they have extremely limited vocabularies and many other problems. Brain scans show that they do not have some of these important connections in their brain.

      well, your answer is quit satisfying but what can be that age limit and  how much the environment can play its role in building that mental capacity

      A little bit of research into child psychology should tell you what you want to know about how the brain develops. It's incredibly interesting. Such as when a child discovers object permanence and peek-a-boo stops working.

    I totally Agree that teaching your children in the early months up to years is the most important way to expand their horizons.
