What is neuroplasticity?

Neuroplasticity refers to the ability of the brain to form new neural pathways and connections across the lifespan. In response to new situations and disease and injury, the nerve cells in the brain can make adjustments in order to compensate.

The brain can reorganise itself by forming new neural pathways which is referred to as "axonal sprouting". Apart from a response to the treatment of brain injury etc, neuroplasticity is now being looked at by some psychologists with respect to cognitive, behavioural, and emotional problems.

The theory of neuroplasticity advocates that the brain can change even in old age by strengthening the neural pathways.
