Neuroplastisity

Postby lilyspetal » Fri Jan 18, 2008 2:48 am

How often is neuroplastisity noticed, over a period of days, weeks, years? Neuroplastisity is the change in brain structure as result of experience- what is the change signaled by? Is there an increase in brain size? Neurotransmitter function?

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
