Neuroplasticity occurs inside us everyday as we encounter new experiences.
.
On the right you’ll see several photographs of neural circuity in the brain.
.
From the left the pictures show us the neural circuity of a newborn, then a 3 month old, 15 month old, and 2 year old.
.
As the child ages, their brain’s wiring becomes increasingly more complex and interconnected.
.
Neuroplasticity is what allows us to take our experiences, then learn from them and form new memories.
.
Huge changes are occurring in the brain during these early stages of cognitive development,

.

but the truth is that our neural networks continue to build on each other until the day we die.
