The Power Of The Ever-Changing Brain

brain“The brain is remarkably adaptive. Like a muscle that gets stronger with use, the brain changes itself when you struggle to master a new challenge. In fact, there’s never a time in life when the brain is completely ‘fixed.’ Instead, all our lives, our neurons retain the potential to grow new connections with one another and to strengthen the ones we already have. What’s more, throughout adulthood, we maintain the ability to grow myelin, a sort of insulting sheath that protects neurons and speeds signals traveling between them.” -From, “Grit” By: Angela Duckworth
