Contrary to conventional wisdom ... Yes, you can teach an old dog new tricks. Okay, maybe not every old dog can learn but here's research that suggests we humans (old and not so old) can learn.

Neuroplasticity & Education
Today the researches in neuroscience show that it is possible to prevent the deterioration of intellectual faculties, and to maintain the functionality of the brain to learn in an effective and satisfactory way even in old age; in short, learning can actually be lifelong. The key word is neuroplasticity. When we talk about neuroplasticity we refer to the change oc-curring in the brain as the consequence of an experience, involving the transfer of specific functions to cerebral areas other than those originally allocated to them.

The Ageing Brain: Neuroplasticity and Lifelong Learning

The Ageing Brain: Neuroplasticity and Lifelong Learning | Neuroplasticity & Education | Scoop.it
Eleonora Guglielman's insight:

The role of adult education is becoming increasingly important in the framework of policies to promote lifelong learning. Adult participation in training activities, however, is still rather low, despite the incentives and initiatives aimed at allowing all citizens access to education and training at all ages in their lives.

 

Participation tends to decrease concomitantly with increasing age: the major difficulty that elderly people have in learning is due to a deterioration of brain function, causing a progressive weakening of concentration, memory and mental flexibility. Today, advanced researches in neuroscience show that brain ageing may be reversible: the brain is plastic in all stages of life, and its maps can restructure themselves through learning experiences.

It probably goes without saying, but the human brain is a marvelous thing. It helps us learn, helps us adapt. A core part of these abilities is thanks to neuroplasticity.
