The brain is about 2% of total body weight. It consumes 25% of metabolic energy and 40% of blood glucose as food. During the first year of life, infants spend 50% of their metabolic energy to construct and refine brain mechanisms. Brain function can be seriously impaired if the slightest mistake occurs in these processes. (Fisher, Helen. Why We Love. NY: Henry Holt and Company, 2004, pp 140-141)
