Our brain is the most complex and mystifying organ in the natural world. It is home to our memories, feelings, and behaviors. It manages all of our biological needs and senses. It is the filter through which we interpret and interact with the world. It is a dynamic organ, either growing or atrophying; it never finds a static state to be content. This profound capacity for change, for neuroplasticity, is the essence of our humanity. Indeed it is this capacity to imagine, experiment, and learn that makes such a unique species.
