Meanwhile, dendrites which receive messages from other cells grow twiggier, and the most heavily used synapses grow richer and stronger. At the same time, synapses that have a little use tendency and begin to wither. This synaptic pruning, causes the brain’s cortex to become thinner but more efficient. In conclusion, these changes make the entire brain a much faster and more sophisticated
