The observation that young brains reorganize more effectively than adult brains was first articulated by Margaret Kennard in 1936. Consequently, the notion that how well a brain can reorganize itself after damage as a function of the developmental stage is now known as the Kennard principle.[1] This research led to one of the earliest experimental evidence for age effects on neuroplasticity.
