Video about the brain's neuroplasticity and ability to change over time depending on our habits, behaviours and experiences.
After watching this, your brain will not be the same
In this research-based TEDx Talk, Dr. Lara Boyd describes our brain's amazing neuroplasticity (ability to change) and we have more ability to shape the brain we want than we realised.
Dr. Boyd’s research is discovering how we learn, how our behaviours impact our brain, how everything we do, or experience is changing our brains. This is leading to new treatments for brain damage and greater understanding of how we best learn. "By learning new concepts, taking advantage of opportunities, and participating in new activities, you are physically changing who you are, and opening up a world of endless possibility."
