What is the most important discovery about your brain in the last 400 years?

Its neuroplasticity.

Brain plasticity, or neuroplasticity, is a strange word for many people. When people hear the word “plastic” they often think of sandwich wrap. However, brain plasticity is a neuroscientific term referring to your brain’s ability to change at any age for better or worse. It is hard to overstate the importance of this process in shaping who you become as a person.

Your brain forms a million new connections every second! Take a moment and think about that. Clearly our everyday experiences and thoughts are hugely important in making our brains what they are.

Scientists are increasingly becoming interested in the forces that act on our brains. Our social interactions, environment, emotions, and spiritual lives all have an impact. In fact, your brain is different now than when you started reading this.

Here’s the question: “What are the details of exactly how our brains can be permanently altered by our experiences?”

Congratulations on learning something about your brain today.

Always remember: “You are a genius!”

Enjoy your brain.
