Self-directed neuroplasticity

The book I mentioned yesterday is about neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity refers to the process of how the brain continuously changes as a consequence of experiences. Neuroplasticity goes so far that it is possible for the brain to relocate brain activity associated to a certain function from one area to another, for instance in the case of brain damage. Read the book if you want to know more. Neuroplasticity is not something on which we have no influence. On the contrary, we can consciously influence it. The possibilities are inspiring. Whatever we focus our attention on has its consequences in terms of how the brain changes. That is why it may be wise to make deliberate choices about what you focus your attention on. Read more about this process of so-called self-directed neuroplasticity in THIS POST by Stephanie West Allen at Idealawg.
