Summary or Abstract : This dissertation illustrates how scientific terms and techniques related to human brain research have been dispersed throughout a wide range of discourses and practices concerning childhood, parenting, and pedagogy, and child welfare. Whereas it was once believed that the human brain was a relatively stable organ which matured along a genetically-predetermined course, the past decade of neuroscientific research has introduced the radically different view that the human brain is in fact a dynamic system whose development is greatly influenced by the experiences, environments, and sensory stimulation of each individual. This shift from static to plastic brain has had an expansive impact on several of the most well-established topics in American culture: what it means to be a kid, how to parent, how to educate, and how to manage a home. I assess this impact through the rhetorical analysis of many kinds of texts--from tabloid to policy paper, news magazine to public relations brochure--in order to show how the textual emergence of the plastic brain has both enabled and required significant and often controversial movement across a wide array of discourses..
