The ability of the brain to change the way it thinks is called Neuroplasticity – “neuro” meaning brain and “plasticity” meaning an ability to change.
It was once believed that the brain you were born with was the brain you would have for your entire life. And, once you killed brain cells, there was no coming back.
Scientists studying neuroplasticity have shown that you can actually re-grow brain cells and by changing the way that you think, you can change the structure and function of your brain. Fascinating!
