Neural Plasticity in Rehabilitation and Psychotherapy: New Perspectives and Findings
Neural plasticity refers to the ability of the nervous system to adaptively respond to changes in the environment sensed by the organism and extends to stimuli such as an enriched environment (EE), increased physical activity, and changes in pharmaceutical and nutritional intake (reviewed in [14]).
