  • not so long ago, many scientists believed that the brain did not change after childhood

  • that it was hard-wired, and fixed by the time we became adults

  • but recent advances in only the last decade now tell us that this is simply not true

  • the brain can, and does change throughout our lives: it is adaptable, like plastic

  • hence neuroscientists call this 'neuroplasticity'

  • how does neuroplasticity work?

  • if you think of your brain as a dynamic, connected power grid

  • there are billions of pathways, or roads, lighting up every time you think, feel or do something

  • some of these roads are well travelled: these are our habits, our established ways of thinking, feeling and doing

  • every time we think in a certain way, practice a particular task or feel a specific emotion, we strengthen this road

  • it becomes easier for our brains to travel this pathway

  • say we think about something differently, learn a new task, or choose a different emotion

  • we start carving out a new road - if we keep travelling that road

  • our brains begin to use this pathway more, and this new way of thinking, feeling, or doing becomes second nature

  • the old pathway gets used less and less and weakens

  • this process of rewiring your brain by forming new connections and weakening old ones is neuroplasticity in action

  • the good news is that we all have the ability to learn and change, by rewiring our brains

  • if you have ever changed a bad habit, or thought about something differently

  • you have carved a new pathway in your brain and experienced neuroplasticity firsthand

  • with repeated and directed attention towards your desired change

  • you can rewire your brain
