Synaptogenesis, a widely researched phenomenon in the field of neuroscience, provides another example of the global and non-specific way that the CNS operates. This phenomenon refers to the spectacularly fast increase in neural connections experienced during the first 3 years of life (Blakemore and Frith 2007). Many of these connections, however, are global, non-specific, and of little use; thus, over time, the system eliminates them through the process of synaptic pruning.
