Neuroplasticity is a crucial topic of discussion. It helps us to understand the various changes that
take place in neural pathways and synapses and the factors that cause them. The paper explains
two main types of neuroplasticity namely; structural plasticity and functional plasticity.
Structural plasticity mainly talks about strength that exists between neurons and meeting points
in the brain cell. On the other hand, functional plasticity is mainly involved with learning and
memory. Any factors that affect one's ability to learn and remember things fall under this
category. The other issue that is addressed in this paper is the principles of neuroplasticity. There
are various principles including the principle that states that changes are often reflected in
behavior, the brain can undergo alteration by experiences, plasticity is found in all nervous
systems and that the principles remain unaltered, and plasticity is time-dependent. It is crucial to
acknowledge that neuroplasticity not only occurs in children but also in adults except the process
is slower in adults. The paper also explains that there is a critical period upon which plasticity
should occur. In the case, plasticity does not occur at that particular duration, an individual is
likely to have less developed brain or be unable to learn certain things. The best age for children

to undergo neuroplasticity is the early years of birth and that during this period they can recover
from any form of plasticity. The other aspect discussed in the paper is the various types of
neuroplasticity in children. Children may experience adaptive, impaired and excessive plasticity
which have various effects on brain development. The various types of plasticity in children have
both merits and demerits in the life of a child.
Neuroplasticity refers to the various changes that occur in neural pathways and synapses which
are caused by factors such as behavior, environment and other neural processes. When
neuroplasticity occurs the brain engages in synaptic pruning which as the effect of removing
neural connections that have become less useful and giving strength to the useful ones. Over the
years, scientists have come up with various developments in neuroplasticity and they finally
concluded that there exist two types of neuroplasticity. The first type is structural neuroplasticity.
Structural neuroplasticity mainly involves changes in the strength, especially between neurons
and chemical meeting points that exist between the brain cells (Caeyenberghs 106). Research
