The brain is capable of significant self-repair and healing. Conditions that include Parkinson’s, autism, stroke, traumatic injury can be stimulated by conscious habits of thought and action, by teaching the brain to “rewire itself”. Norman Doidge, the Brain's Way of Healing via The Guardian

Do you believe you can think yourself well, changing the very structure of your brain over time through rigorous training?

"7 Tenets of Neuroplasticity". • Change can occur only when the brain is in the mood.• Change strengthens the connections between neurons engaged at the same time.• Neurons that fire together, wire together. • Strong emotions strengthen the connections.• Brain plasticity is a two-way street.• Memory is crucial for learning.• Motivation is a key factor.

When I first heard of the science of neuroplasticity, the word struck me as a rather odd way to describe the brain. How could the brain be plastic?

Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to form new connections—as well as eliminate old ones—throughout life. In previous generations, people often believed that the neural connections of the brain were fixed by a certain age. We now know that the brain continues to develop and rewire itself throughout life and that experience can change the brain’s structure and functioning.
