Brain Plasticity

The internal structure of your brain is responsible for absorbing, storing and retrieving information.  Your brain uses neurotransmitters to carry, store and retrieve the information you’ve collected. 

The information that you’ve collected, stored and retrieved, becomes a memory.  Your brain uses your memories to control, guide and initiate your behavior.

The location, availability and recall of your memories is constantly changing based on need and importance.  Your brain’s ability to make those changes is referred to as Brain Plasticity or Neuroplasticity.

Brain Plasticity is constantly altering and molding the internal structure of your brain in response to your thoughts, experiences and behavior.  Brain Plasticity is constantly reorganizing the pathways, connections and internal structure of the brain.  It makes these changes to accommodate new information that needs storage space and the relative importance of previously stored information.  That means that the internal structure of your brain is constantly changing in response to what you do or don’t do.

Brain plasticity stores information based on importance and need.  That establishes how stored information is made available to you.  What you do or don’t do establishes importance and need.

Information collected and stored, and Blood are the only two resources your brain has to draw from in its effort to control, guide and initiate behavior.

Your brain needs information to control and guide behavior.  It controls and guides behavior in an effort to ensure survival and comfort.  It obtains the information it stores from your thoughts, experiences and behavior; the things you do.  Who you are.  The frequency and need of the things you do establishes the importance of the information you collect and how its stored.

Your brain uses blood to support the storage and movement of the information you use.  By determining where information is stored, Brain Plasticity determines how blood is used.

Brain plasticity accomplishes two important objectives related to the of functioning of your brain.  First, it strengthens communication or signaling between cells and cell networks.  That allows those cells and cell networks that are needed or important to communicate quickly.  Brain plasticity will move or shut-down those cells and cell networks that have little use or are not being used.

Second, brain plasticity allows the brain to function efficiently.  Blood is your brain’s only support resource.  The amount of blood used in any given action, which includes thought, determines the cost of that action.  By continuously reorganizing the internal structure of the brain based on need and importance, the brain’s plasticity is minimizing the cost of any particular action.
