An Introduction to Neuroplasticity - The Dynamic Brain

An Introduction to Neuroplasticity
The Dynamic Brain
 
This course is an introduction to the concepts of “neuroplasticity”. This understanding will form the foundation for new therapies that, for the most part, have yet to be created within mainstream medicine. Such a process begins by discarding old, no-longer-valid information, and making room for completely radical, amazing, and inspiring new information.
 
Purpose and Objective
 
The purpose is to teach what is known about the brain’s ability to be changeable, flexible and to grow new neurons and make new connections in response to stimulation. At the conclusion of the course, the participant will be able to:
  • Define the differences between “localization”, “hardwiring”, and “neuroplasticity.”
  • Review the history of the discoveries and studies that made the shift to neuroplasticity possible.
  • Describe ways in which neurons, genes, and cellular receptors respond to repeated, focused stimuli.
  • Identify the neuroplastic features of learning.
  • Recognize early applications of neuroplasticity to drug action, stroke rehabilitation, psychological disorders, and aging.
