2a) Overview and Definitions. In a few sentences, explain how the somatotopic brain mapping techniques of Wilder Penfield and Michael Merzenich helped change our perspective on brain plasticity.
2b) Case-study Review the article on the changing brain maps of growing rats we did in class OR this article on Increased Cortical Representation of the Fingers of the Left Hand in String Players String Players Study (Links to an external site.)OR Louisa's experience as a double cochlear implant user Luisa's story (Links to an external site.). Explain what additional perspectives your chosen case-study offers on brain maps and brain plasticity, and how it has helped you understand them better.
2c) Applying your knowledge Think of a skill / habit you would like to acquire or one you would like to ditch. Use your knowledge of brain plasticity to design a concrete, clear plan to help you do this. Explain the reasoning behind each of your steps.

Wilder Penfield and Michael Merzenich were scientists who studied how the brain works. They did this by looking at how different parts of the brain work. They also studied how the brain can change. This means that if something happens to part of the brain, it might be able to heal or learn new things.
These scientists found that the brain is very good at learning new things. It can also heal itself after an injury. This is because the brain has a lot of plasticity, meaning that it can change and grow.
The brain is always growing and changing. This is why it’s important to learn new things and to keep your brain healthy. You can do this by eating healthy foods, exercising, and challenging your brain with new activities.
She is a great writer, editor, very good with understanding the task at hand and taking directions of what is being asked of her. Also she's very time efficient, I received my paper ahead of time with tracked changes so that if I had anything I would like to change, she would be able to do that and I would still receive my paper on time. Definitely use her services again.
