[[SpringtimeForHitler He doesn't]], causing Gumball to angrily ask why "Why couldn't you have managed that when I was a baby?" It's not exactly clear if he's being sarcastic.

** Since the prefrontal cortex is so critical to our higher, medium, and even basic level mental processes, damage to the prefrontal cortex causes dysfunction in social, emotional, and decision making behavior. In children, the mental repercussion can be a lot more severe, and a condition known as "[[TheSociopath acquired sociopathy]]" can arise from it, with the hallmarks of [[LackOfEmpathy callousness]], impulsivity, and [[ItsAllAboutMe extreme self-centered behaviour]] found in the usual [[TheSociopath sociopath]]. The severity of this condition increases in children who get the brain damage at a younger age.

* Brain damage in childhood (generally caused by traumatic brain injury or stroke) can have widely varying effects. Children are significantly more able to recover from brain damage and return to a close-to-normal level of ability than adults are since their brains are more "plastic", developing alternate pathways and repurposing other areas of the brain much more easily to fix the damaged capacity. However, since a child's brain is under heavy development, brain damage during this period can disrupt their development and result in serious developmental problems for the child. Brain damage is no laughing matter in any case (even when it [[GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul Paints Smilies On Your Soul]].
