In conclusion, the neuroplasticity of the human brain allow us to change as called for by our situation. We are able to manipulate our senses to accomplish tasks, function with lack of a sense and adapt to the unique needs of our culture. Doidge in his book, The Brain that Changes Itself points out all these capabilities of the human brain. The brain isn’t the static organ it was once thought to be and its plasticity has a profound affect on our human existence.
