Localization and Neroplasticity

Just as forests become more efficient to navigate once paths have been laid due to repeated use, so too does your brain become more efficient and effective as it creates neural networks (paths) via experience

Localization and neuroplasticity are two key concepts that are greatly related. Both have massive impacts on brain function and therefore and an understanding of one informs the understanding of the other. For example in the case of Ramachandran’s “phantom limb” patiens, understanding neuroplasticity informs understanding localization and vice versa.
