In their article "Brain Plasticity and Behavior", Kolb, Gibb, and Robinson explain the nature of brain plasticity and consider the possible factors that lead to brain change. Brain plasticity is the ability of the brain to change in response to experience. This means that the brain is constantly changing in response to our environment and our experiences. The brain is plastic because it is able to adapt to new circumstances and learn new things.
