What is Neural Plasiticty

Neural plasticity is a term that is currently defined this way in the literature: Any change in neuron structure or function that is observed either directly from measures of individual neurons or inferred from measures taken across populations of neurons. We summarize this as “the nervous system’s ability to constantly change.” This concept tells us that the brain not only can change, but it does change constantly. If everything that we are is brain derived, it is exciting to think that with the right stimulus, combined with the right amount of work, that we can indeed have a bigger and better future for ourselves by changing our own brain. Z-Health, as a whole system, is based on this concept, and every tool, assessment and technique is designed to drive plasticity in the direction we want it to go… toward better movement and greater (healthy) efficiency.
