The brain is an important and powerful part our our bodies. It controls our muscles so we can move and speak. It enables us to create, invent and think. It also allows us to feel, laugh and dream. It really is a hard working mechanism and each of us carry them in our heads.
This week we learnt about neuroplasticity. It refers to our brains having about 100 billion neurons which travels around our brains helping us to think and make decisions. Can you imagine 100 billion? That is a huge number and that is roughly how many neurons we have in our brains.
One of our activities was to make our own model of neurons. We had fun using the play doh to create our individual neurons.
We would like to thank Mrs Turner for coming in to Room 7 and teaching us about neuroplasticity.
