Neuroplasticity is the ability that the brain has to form new connections between different cells or between different areas of the brain.
“Neuro” refers to the cells and the brain while “plasticity” refers to the ability for something to be molded. Neuroplasticity is what makes the baby brain so full of opportunity because we have all these cells that can still wire together. We can make different pathways, different connections, and sometimes functions that have been lost can be regained.
Neuroplasticity is at its peak from zero to three years of age. That is when the opportunity and the challenge starts.
