Neuroplasticity is the ability that our brains have to adapt to changing circumstances. Even a traumatic event such as brain surgery, stroke, or a traumatic injury to the brain can be accommodated by the growth of new neural pathways. Your brain can even reroute functionality from one area to another!
Over a million people in the United States alone suffer from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) each year, and men are 1.5 times as likely to experience this than women.
