What is means
Your Plasticity score reflects how well your brain is able to react and adapt to changes in your surroundings.
What it tests
The ability of neurons to compensate for injury and disease and to adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment.
Why it's important
This is a systemic metric, which means that scores reflects the neuroplasticity of the entire brain. In patients that have sustained a brain injury, neuroplasticity allows the brain to undergo cortical remapping, in which functions (like processing information or identifying sensations) in the damaged region are transferred to a different region of the cerebral cortex. Poor Plasticity scores have been correlated with migraines, chronic pain, neurodegenerative disorders, and traumatic insults (particularly to the parietal lobe).
