The first time I heard of the term neural plasticity was in the fall of 1988. I was a freshman psychology student working in the laboratory of Matti Saari at Niplasing University in North Bay, Ontario. Matti introduced me to the idea that the nervous system encoded information within the neural circuits (learned) through changes in neuron structure and function. He also convinced me that the most powerful driver of plasticity was behavior (experience-dependent plasticity).
