One of the most important of these is the pituitary gland. It enables a certain hormone, the growth hormone, to function. How we will grow and our size are determined by our heredity. We can't make ourselves grow bigger or smaller. We also have to go through certain stages of growth. These are the embryo and fetus (not yet born), infant, child, youth, mature adult and old age. At birth an infant already has all the nerve cells he will ever have -- the cells in his brain, in his spinal cord and those that reach out into every part of his body. The growth of the connections between these nerve cells will enable him to control his movements. While all human beings are much alike in their growth, there are important individual differences. Each human being follows the same general pathway, but follows it in his own particular way and at his own peed. People's bodies grow faster n the early weeks of life than at any later time. Even before he end of the first year they a r e growing less rapidly. Throughout the whole period of childhood they grow at a moderate rate. Then growth starts to speed up again. For girls this usually begins between ages 11 and 13, and for boys between 12 and 14. For a while they grow faster until they reach a top speed. Then they slow down again and grow more slowly until growth height stops altogether. They have reached full size. Growth in height and growth in weight often take turns in person. First he grows upward for a while, then sideways. For many people there is a "chubby" period that happens around i 11 or 12 years. But then in the next few years their height begins to catch up.
