Neuroplasticity happens partly as a result of our ability to create new brain cells and maintain existing ones in a healthy state. These brain cells or neurons, have a branched formation and dendrites that reach out from them; they look like branches of a tree, or clusters of net and send it to the cell body. If the information or compiled signals are strong enough, the cell body will continue to send that message with an electrical surge down a channel called an axono, across a synaptic gap, and on to the next dendrite waiting to continue passing along the message to other neurons. All together, this system of cells, channels, and branches becomes a communication network where the electrical signaling from one cell can pass through channels and be spread to other areas, inspiring an electrical signal in those other areas as well. Every thought, everything learned, every sensation, is an electric telephone game. The more we signal through a mapped area, the more that mapped area can reach out to other areas with speed, strength of signal, and ease of firing. When we’re not neuroplastic, our reach is limited, and sometimes even shrinks.
