In the cerebral cortex, sensory processing of external stimuli can evoke neural networks to fire flurried electrical responses. These responses can leave neurological traces from a particular experience like crumb trails, which can be strengthened for long-term recall. However, due to the complexity of the connections and sheer number of neurons within the cortex, understanding these traces has been daunting for neuroscientists.
Postnatal maturation of the brain requires pruning of excess synapses, a process that is dependent on sensory input and synaptic activity....
