Overview

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. But thanks to science, we now know that the human brain is an astonishingly flexible and adaptable organ that has the capacity to develop and recover in a vast array of circumstances all throughout our lives. This adaptability is known as neuroplasticity. While it was once thought that the human brain was “finished” in adulthood, it has since been found that our brains continue to change and adapt in response to new experiences in every stage of life. In Your Fantastic Plastic Brain, neuroscientist Kelly Lambert of the University of Richmond will reveal how researchers discovered this hidden superpower and what neuroscience is continuing to uncover about the brain and its miraculous elasticity.
