In the lecture, the speaker mentions that the key to forming strong brain architecture is “serve and return” interaction with adults. At the beginning of the lecture, the speaker says that new neural connections form in the brain as young children instinctively serve through babbling, facial expressions, and gestures, and adults return the serve, responding in a much directed, meaningful way. Also, the speaker mentions that this interaction forms the foundation of brain architecture upon which all future development will be built. According to the speaker, it helps create neural connections between all the different areas of the brain-building the emotional and cognitive skills children need in life. Lastly, the speaker indicates that ensuring that children have adult caregivers who consistently engage in serve and return interaction, beginning in infancy, builds the foundation in the brain for all learning, behavior, and health.
