  1. Owing to various sophisticated techniques like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and fMRI, a lot of research is being done on the human brain. The human brain has various parts and they start growing right from the time of conception to the age of 18.
    Before birth and during the first few months of life, the brain undergoes maximum changes in size, shape and structure. From childhood (around 2 years) till the age of 13, the white matter increases as the grey matter decreases. The increase and decrease of grey matter peaks at the age of twelve and by the age of 18, the brain completely stops its growth.
