In their research, scientists from Brown University in the USA imaged the brains of children aged 8 to 11 and adults aged 18 to 35 as they were learning to do a task.

For the study, published in Current Biology, the researchers wanted to examine how its concentration in the brain changes in adults and children during the learning process.


According to the news of the Daily Mail, it was observed that the GABA levels (Gamma-Aminobutyric acid) of children increased during the learning phase. Known to help solidify new information, this molecule remained stable in adults.

The researchers hope their findings will encourage parents and teachers to provide more opportunities for children to learn new skills because it will be easier for them to acquire these skills at a younger age.

According to the experts, more research and different learning scenarios such as reading and writing will guide GABA levels and how quickly the brain and its functions mature.
