We are insanely interested in understanding how environmental factors affect the developing brain.  We want to know how it is possible for neurons to integrate and respond to these factors, many of which may be present one moment and disappear the next.  We also want to know how the brain is able to regulate synaptic connectivity under such dynamic circumstances.
