***How do we improve brain function?***

🧠 Recap - neuroplasticity marks the formation of neural connections with both internal and external experiences. So what are these external factors? What about individuals with brain injuries and how might these affect them?

1) Repetition of movements and goal-directed activities and continued exercise promotes reintegration into daily life for individuals who have suffered a brain injury. Exercise and proper nutrition allow for the prevention and complications that can lead to brain injury.

2) Emotional and mental health management is crucial for receiving, processing, and retaining new information. Socializing and being exposed to various environments that provide rich sensory experiences help provide the necessary stimuli for brain function and sensory and motor skills retention.

3) Cognitive training and leisure pursuits are important for brain health and executive functioning. This includes orientation to the world around, attention skills (both long-term and short-term), language processing, and even overall problem-solving skills. By keeping these skills strong, the individual can have a sense of confidence and continued motivation for improving their brain health or their journey to recovery.
