The human brain is an amazing thing. This three-pound organmore than 75 percent of which is watercan process more information than even the most advanced computer. (At least for now: That could very easily change soon.) It continually modifies itself throughout a persons life, as neural networks rearrange according to experiences with new external stimuli. And when it comes to these encounters, more is better. They drive the development of the brain, as reorganization causes the number of brain cells to grow, as well as communicate with each other with greater frequency and complexity through a chemical neurotransmitter called acetylcholine (the car) and nerve fibers known as dendrites (the highways). This phenomenon is referred to in neuroscience circles as plasticity, which relates directly to the twin pillars of learningcognition and memory.
