SAMPLE SECTION: BRAIN BOOSTERS 101:

Myth or Fact:  We lose brain cells as we age and cannot grow new ones.

Myth!  Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to reorganize neural pathways as a result of experience. Recent brain imaging technologies show that, as you receive input through your senses with frequency, intensity, and duration, the brain physically changes structure.

How?  Brains physically react and adapt in response to challenge. Once structure changes, the function can change. Put simply, “neuroplasticity” is the brain’s ability to change when it’s learning.
