    • ...Infancy marks the emergence of attention skills (Diamond, 1985; Ruff & Rothbart, 1996) and corresponds to dynamic development of the prefrontal cortex, a brain region important for attention: major dendritic outgrowth (Eyre, Miller, Clowry, Conway, & Watts, 2000; Mrzljak, Uylings, Van Eden, & Judas, 1990), an initial spurt in synaptogenesis (Huttenlocher & Dabholkar, 1997; Mrzljak et al, 1990), the majority of myelination occurs (Giedd et al, 1999; Klinberg, Vaidya, Gabrieli, Moseley, & Hedehus, 1999; Yaklovlev & Lecours, 1967), and synaptic pruning commences (Huttenlocher & Dabholkar, 1997)...
