Neuroplasticity: How It Can Optimize Brain Health
Our brains are constantly being shaped by experience. Most of us have very different behaviors and thoughts today than we did 20 years ago. This shift is neuroplasticity in action; changes in brain structure and organization as we experience, learn, and adapt. With every repetition of a thought or emotion, we reinforce a neural pathway - and with each new thought, we begin to create a new way of being. These small changes, frequently enough repeated, lead to changes in how our brains work.
Join us for a discussion on Neuroplasticity and learn:
- What neuroplasticity is and how it works
- Implications for memory, learning and brain health
- Effective therapies that can tap into neuroplasticity
