The Brain is involved in everything we do. It controls our fears which set the boundaries of our life. It controls your ability to concentrate and learn new skills to make new memories and recall old ones. It controls your emotional response, whether you feel stress or excitement, sadness or joy. It controls your creativity and expression, your ability to make and maintain relationships. It controls your repetitive thoughts and behaviours that seem to be in control of you and of course, the Brain controls every biological function.
The Brain can change, that shouldn't surprise us as it happens all the time. Whenever we learn something new we have brought about a change in Brain Function. Unfortunately as we go through life some of these changes are unwanted. We used to think that the gradual accumulation of unwanted changes was a one way street. However, using our growing understanding of how the Brain works and advanced technology we can bring about desired change.
