Re: Brain damage

Interesting , but don't the linings of the nyrons improve rather then the pathways themselves . I thought latest research was Dyspraxic people have an excess of pathways so the communication is spread over multiple pathways rather then in an ND person who has fewer ??

Re: Are dyspraxic's deluded?
