good night, … I want to ask from what age until how old does the prefrontal cortex (PFC) brain can develop or can it be repaired?

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically the human brain has begun to form since before the baby is born (approximately 3 weeks after conception) and will continue to develop into adulthood. Its development is certainly faster when still a child (already 90% at the age of 3 years and almost fully developed at the age of 5 years), but even in elderly people the brain can still continue to experience development (can still continue to save memory and learn new things for example ), although the ability to develop will be slower as you age.


Prefrontal cortex is a special part of the brain in humans, which functions to regulate executive functions, namely the ability to plan things, make decisions, solve problems, control themselves, remember instructions, weigh the consequences, etc. This section mainly develops at puberty and develops to almost perfect at approximately 25 years of age. This explains why young children and adolescents perform impulsive actions more frequently, are more vulnerable and more easily affected by the environment than adults.


Regarding whether or not this part of the PFC can be repaired, of course it depends on what "damage" you mean? In general, brain cells are cells that cannot repair themselves when damaged. If the damage you are referring to is an injury to the brain, for example due to an accident, stroke, bleeding, etc., then this kind of damage will likely not be repaired and executive function disorder will likely occur permanently.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
