Rewire Your Brain – Neuroplasticity

Do you know that it is possible to change the way your brain is “wired?”
Yes, indeed, it is possible for a person to rewire his or her brain through the process of neuroplasticity. Accordingly, neuroplasticity allows you to literally change your mind and the way you think about things.

“For decades, scientists thought that the adult human brain was static and unchanging. But in the last few decades, we have learned that the adult brain is more dynamic than we ever imagined!”
That statement appears on the YouTube video Neuroplasticity that I recommend you watch and listen.
