The short answer is YES! By taking good care of your brain and providing these two things, novelty and challenge, your brain responds by growing new dendritic connections. That's quite exciting when you consider someone who believes it's too late, like people with ADHD or a brain injury or a genetic condition. At MINDCAP we lead every client (child or adult) in building a model of a neuron for understanding this powerful message of hope that neuroplasticity gives. You can watch a FaceBook video on how to build a neuron on my FB page or on the MINDCAP Cognitive Advantage Program FB page. Your brain is just pretty amazing. Next time you hear someone say, "It's too late for me to learn that," be sure to give them hope! Build a neuron!
