What is neuroscience and neuroplasticity?
Neuroscience is the scientific study of how the brain and nervous system work.
Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to ‘rewire’ - to form and reorganise synaptic connections, especially in response to an individual’s efficiency, resilience and adaptability.
To maintain permanent change, we create new brain maps or patterns which rewires our behaviour, habits and beliefs.
