Neuroplasticity can be viewed as a general umbrella term that refers to the brain’s ability to modify, change, and adapt both structure and function throughout life and in response to experience.
Neuroplasticity, also known as neural plasticity, or brain plasticity, is the ability of neural networks in the brain to change through growth and reorganization. It is when the brain is rewired to function in some way that differs from how it previously functioned.
It’s like a rewiring “job”: When the brain finds a neural pathway blocked (following brain damage and/or stroke) it (subconsciously) works at finding a new route to get to the desired destination.
Think I wrote about this somewhere on one of my many blogs on this subject
“Life is one amazing journey of learning, exploring, testing limits, discovering and dreaming”
My other blogs in this area are at www.facebook.com/livingwithheadinjury
“We share what we know, so that we all may grow.”
“Knowledge is the gateway to understanding…and understanding is the gateway to a better life.”
Shining a light of hope in the darkest corners
Helping promote better understanding and awareness of what is often termed “The Silent Epidemic” (and/or “The Hidden Handicap”)
“Inform, educate, uplift and (perhaps even) inspire”
from a Google search (to rescue me from “sheer utter chaos”). Thanks “BIG G” and by that, I mean God… rather than Google!
Share, encourage, uplift and help spread hope, love and light
