Until recently, scientists believed that brain development came to a halt during adulthood. Today we know that our brains are constantly changing throughout our lives and forming new pathways in response to our environment, actions, thinking and emotions. This is good news for all of us, whether we want to improve learning outcomes for kids, maintain sharp thinking as we age, optimize functioning at work or enhance treatment for a mental health or substance use problem.

Breakthroughs in understanding of brain plasticity have spurred new directions in neuroscience research, producing a wide range of practical applications through the use of:

  • games, apps and computer-assisted learning
  • magnetic and electrical medical devices
  • new medication and therapies
  • mindfulness practice, diet and exercise
