Descrip­tion: Until recent­ly, sci­en­tists believed that brain devel­op­ment came to a halt dur­ing adult­hood. Today we know that our brains are con­stant­ly chang­ing through­out our lives and form­ing new path­ways in response to our envi­ron­ment, actions, think­ing and emo­tions. This is good news for all of us, whether we want to improve learn­ing out­comes for kids, main­tain sharp think­ing as we age, opti­mize func­tion­ing at work or enhance treat­ment for a men­tal health or sub­stance use prob­lem.

Break­throughs in under­stand­ing of brain plas­tic­i­ty have spurred new direc­tions in neu­ro­science research, pro­duc­ing a wide range of prac­ti­cal appli­ca­tions through the use of:

  • games, apps and com­put­er-assist­ed learn­ing
  • mag­net­ic and elec­tri­cal med­ical devices
  • new med­ica­tion and ther­a­pies
  • mind­ful­ness prac­tice, diet and exer­cise
