Brain Plasticity

I found this video about this little girl named Jody who was having multiple epilepsies coming from the right hemisphere of her brain. The doctors determined that the right hemisphere be removed. I was shocked and amazed to see that Jodi adapted so easily. Brain Plasticity as we learned is the brains ability to adapt to using new pathways to ensure functionality within a person. This video was incredible and helps viewers understand how the brain can alter its shape and functioning to accommodate its vessel.

One thought on “Brain Plasticity

  1. Would a corpus callostomy not have been a reasonable procedure? Why didnt they remove the entire right hemishphere instead? But I really liked how Ben Carson performed the surgery! A remarkable man!
