Do you know what neuroplasticity is?

It's the brain's ability to restructure itself in response to stimuli. These stimuli can be learning new skills, experiences, stress, etc.

This is important because it allows people to recover from brain injury, for example. It also allows people to become more intelligent - people who learn new languages, for example, develop better cognitive skills than people who don't.
