For my Child development class we were talking about the brain the other day in class and there was a young boy in our book (he was 7) who had half of his brain removed, and as he grew up his brain adapted to the changes and he grew up very healthy. I was wondering, if that same surgery was done on say a 35 year old would he be able to have the same out come of recovery as the young boy, or would he have disabilities since his brain is done growing? I cant find anything else anywhere else so I was hoping somebody ob here might be able to help me out.
