Brain Plasticity: BPA-free

“Research has revealed that the brain is dynamic and continues to change across our entire lifespan, varying from person to person and from moment to moment, based on an individual’s life experience. We can recognize the truth based on this insight when we reread without enjoyment a once-favorite book and wonder what about it had formerly appealed to us. . . . As a result of the lifetime plasticity of our brain, we’re literally a different person from the person who read the book the first time.”

— from “Empathy and other Mysteries” by Richard Restak, The American Scholar, Winter 2011
