Stacy York points at Dr. Bruce Perry's diagram for brain development. She said the brain develops from the bottom up and inside out. Brain development begins in the brain stem with the somatosensory denoted by SS in the diagram. Regulatory is the emotional response that develops fully between ages four to six. Affect/relational develops during the teenage years followed by cognitive-plus by the age of 25. Trauma can impede brain development anywhere during the process.
