the brain question

Okay I think I've answered my own question. It seems that much of the brain's development occurs before we're born and just after. By the age of 2 years old, the brain is about 80% of adult brain size. However, a two year old's head is nowhere near the size of the head of a fully grown adult, hence the folding of the brain to fit.
