Neuroplasticity is a fascinating subject as the human brain is incredibly complex.
Think of the brain as a giant computer, one that is so powerful that it can process vast amounts of information before you can even blink. At one time, it was considered impossible to change the brain, to improve it, or, to have a chance of recovery following trauma to the brain but, this has now been proven untrue. This knowledge opens up the potential to continue learning, to change old negative behaviours and to respond more positively to the stressors of life.
Neuroplasticity is the process of changing the neural synapses and pathways. Influences through neural adaptations, environmental or behavioural changes occur all the time without your knowing but, it does show us that the capacity of the brain to be altered is significant. With billions of nerve cells (neurons) it’s possible to adapt different learning processes either through creating new neural pathways or rearranging existing ones. This is done via communication between the nerves. The brain is exposed to new information and it can retain it.
Neuroplasticity is action through experiences, through adaptation and through learning. How we think and feel reinforces neural pathways and will contribute to how we live our lives. Even though changes may be small, they can be significant. When thoughts, feelings or behaviours are adapted and repeated frequently, these start to form new habits and processes.

I have taken many courses from Karen E Wells and neuroplasticity explains how the brain is working in those issues we are stressed. I can use it right away. Very good course and well explained. I learned it in my wellness therapist education for many years ago but this was much better.Thank you.
