A member asked:

At what age does dendrite development cease?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

It might be ongoing: While big neurological changes happen in childhood, emerging research in neurobiology indicates that dendrites and axons continue to change, adapt, and develop throughout the lifespan. Some of the studies point to age being less of a factor in cessation of neurological development, with environment (e.g., lack of ongoing learning that could promote maintenance/ growth) being more of a factor.
