DR JEFFREY SCHWARTZ Design your brain for better results Neuroplasticity, or the changeability of the physical and cellular structure of the brain, means that our brain rewires itself in response to inner and outer life experience. Self-directed neuroplasticity, a term coined by UCLA researcher and clinical psychiatrist Jeffrey Schwartz, is the process by which we can wilfully cause these brain adaptations by using our minds to change our brains.
