Brain Plasticity

Brain Plasticity  or Neuroplasticity  is the lifelong ability for the brain to reorganize neural pathways based on experiences. We learn new information everyday. For us remember and understand what we learn there has to be consistent functional changes in the brain that represents the new knowledge. This ability of the brain to adjust to new information that is learned is called brain plasticity.

Neuroplasticity has several different processes that occur throughout an individual in their lifetime.
Neuroplasticty occurs under two main conditions.  During normal development when the immature brain first begins to collect information and throughout adulthood.
