"Just as weightlifting and physical exercise builds your muscles, when you’re learning the nerve cells in your brain are growing with mental exercise and these neurons are developing greater connectivity.
The growth and rewiring of our brain cells is called neuroplasticity. As we learn, our brain literally remodels itself based on our new experiences.
Until recently, the conventional thinking was that our brains were hardwired at birth and therefore unchangeable. In actuality, our brains are like malleable plastic that is constantly being reshaped by our daily experiences."
