I’m thrilled to have watched this TED talk!!!!
Science says that adult human brains can regrow, rewire and reallocate function throughout life – however baby brain neuroplasticity is thought to be non-existent. This is exactly what I have heard from the Neuro-Genetic and Developmental Medicine teams at the Royal Children’s Hospital time and time again… “Natalie, the hope of a cure is unrealistic, Chiara’s brain damage is irreversible and unlike an adult brain that has been fully formed to begin with – Chiara’s brain never fully formed, thus her brain damage is fixed – unrepairable”
But, as we have learnt through IAHP – The brain grows by use.. so good to watch these inspiring TED talks on brain growth and beyond….
