Cognitive Plasticity in Adulthood

Cognitive Plasticity in Adulthood

Although the adult brain was once thought to be a rather static organ, it is now clear that the organization of brain circuitry is constantly changing as a function of experience. These changes refer to the brain's plasticity, and occur during learning and memory as a result of stress, addiction and during recovery of function following brain injury. In addition to brain plasticity, there is now evidence that personality characteristics are also plastic, responding to training, for example, to increase openness.

On January 28, please join our experts as they discuss plasticity of personality.
