Why Children May Learn Quicker Than Grownups.

Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is responsible for inhibiting the excitability of brain cells and balancing the neuronal activity required for healthy brain function. With the aid of state-of-the-art neuroimaging, researchers observed that GABA levels are lower in children, which may help to explain why kids can learn new concepts faster than adults.
