Neuroplasticity

Neuroplasticity, a concept only discovered within the past twenty years or so, refers to the ability of the brain’s neural pathways to grow, change, and reorganize. This plasticity can be impacted by external (physical or chemical) changes to the structure of the brain, but it can also be changed by internal, activity-dependent behaviors. This means that we can work to intentionally enhance or alter our brain function by changing our behaviors and thought patterns. Meditation is one particularly well-studied practice for brain change.We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
