This story describes how because the world you live in is always changing, your behaviors have to change and so does your brain. 

  • Being able to adapt to changes in your world helps you to survive. 
  • Everything that you do changes your brain.  Your brain has the ability to adapt – known as neuroplasticity. 
  • Everything about your brain is changing.  This includes the number of neurons and glial cells that make up your brain, the connections between those cells, and the blood vessels that carry things in and out of your brain – everything is always changing.
