Lesson 5: Plasticity, Memory, and Cortical Modulation in the Brain

Assignment 5: Plasticity, Memory, and Cortical Modulation in the Brain

Now I'd like you to take what you have learned in this lesson about brain plasticity and correlate it with other information you've received in this course. Remember, the higher the region is in your brain, the greater the plasticity, or capacity for learning and change. Make a list of five-to-10 different brain functions. What part of the brain controls this function? How high in the brain is the part that controls this function? How does that affect your capacity for change? Is a change more or less likely to occur as a function of age?

Where do you want to go next?
