The adult brain is not entirely "hard-wired" with fixed neuronal connections!

is the brain's ability to make adaptive changes related to the structure and function of the nervous system.

Benefits Neuroplasticity Has on the Brain:

Recovery from brain events like strokes Recovery from traumatic brain injuries Ability to rewire functions in the brain (e.g., if an area that controls one sense is damaged, other areas may be able to pick up the slack) Losing function in one area may enhance functions in other areas (e.g., if one sense is lost, the others may become heightened) Enhanced memory abilities Wide range of enhanced cognitive abilities More effective learning

Without neuroplasticity human (or any other) brain wouldn't be unable to develop from infancy through to adulthood or recover from brain injury.

Let us know if you have any questions about neuroplasticity, so we could cover them in our future posts
