Scientists claim that these brain connections can have an adverse effect on the nervous systems.

Moreover, they got a more specific answer, and identified that the malfunctioning gene within the neurones, called RNF8, may be the one to blame. Usually, it regulates connections between neurons and makes communication between them possible.

Scientists also state that in cases when genes work in a wrong way they can overload the system and confuse the brain.

An increased number of synapses creates miscommunication among neurons in the developing brain that correlates with impairments in learning, although we don’t know how.
