It was not long ago when most people, including scientists, thought that the human brain could not be developed beyond a certain point. The terms “hardwired”, “fixed”, and “unchangeable” were associated with the nerve development of the human brain once a certain age (usually early childhood to adolescence) was reached.
Neuroplasticity is now defined as: “The brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming neural connections throughout life.”
No longer is the human brain thought to be a static, unchanging organ that is limited by our age. In fact, neuroscientists have produced accumulating evidence that demonstrates the brains ability to restructure and form neural connections to compensate for damage caused by injury, disease, and age. So not only can your brain repair and strengthen itself despite of age, it can do so even if it’s been damaged! Continue reading.
