The human prefrontal cortex matures around age 30. Historically there have been times of prosperity that coincide with times of relative longevity in humans (e.g., Tang, Caliphate, Indus Valley, Hellenistic, Incan, Byzantine, Renaissance, Modern.) The opportunity to live long enough for the brain to fully mature may explain the technological advances that occurred during those times, while shorter life spans may explain the many gaps in innovation (like during the dark ages).
