In brief: Maybe new nerves

As a child the nerve pathways for some of our various systems are still in the development stage.
Neuroscientists have theorized that we seek novel stimuli, such as spinning in circles, to promote the growth of these nerves and help the pathways develop when we are young children. Now, at age 40 plus, they are well established and a bit less pleasant to stress.
