What is Neuroplasticity?
This is where Neuroplasticity comes in. Our brains are adaptable and continuously changing, our brains learn what we practice. Neuroplasticity is a term used for when your brain adapts or “re-maps” itself by learning new patterns and creating new connections. Essentially your brain can recruit healthy neurons that weren’t being used in those communication paths before in order to communicate again.
A major goal of neurorehabilitaiton is to strengthen or create new connections in the brain so that lost functions can be regained or present functions can be maximized through neuroplasticity.
