Brain Plasticity: A Mental Health Renaissance – Hani Akasheh

Brain plasticity, also known as neuroplasticity, is a term that refers to the¬†brain’s¬†ability to change and adapt as a result of experience. Without this ability, any brain, not just the human brain, would be unable to develop from infancy through to adulthood or recover from brain injury. A surprising consequence of neuroplasticity is the fact that the brain activity associated with a given function can actually move to a different location as a consequence of experience or brain damage.
