Hypnosis NYC and Neuroplasticity
Neuroplasticity is a term used in the field of neuroscience to refer to the ability of the brain and nervous system to change both structurally and functionally as a result of input from the environment. Plasticity can occur at the cellular level which is involved in memory and learning, but also on a larger scale such as with cortical remapping in response to an injury. Neurological research has shown that certain experiences can actually change both the brain’s physical structure (anatomy) and its functional organization (physiology)
Neuroscientists are just beginning to realize that the brain is by no means immutable and that it can and indeed does change in response to our environment and experiences.
