Scientists previously thought that the brains structure was hard-wired and unchangeable. Patients with brain damage seldom made full recoveries and the microscopic activities of the brain was unobservable. It was largely believed that the brain functioned much like a machine – capable of many things but unable to grow and change.
New research has shown that the brain actually exhibits plasticity. It is able to grow and adapt based on experiences!
