How many of you made a New Year's resolution to learn something new, perhaps self-studying a new language, taking an art course at your local community center, or going back to school to finish your degree? When you set out to learn something new, the brain engages in self-directed neuroplasticity. Self-directed means you are purposefully focusing your attention on the new knowledge or skill. Neuroplasticity means the experience of learning creates new neural connections, pathways and structures in your brain. You are literally changing your brain through the process of learning something new.
