How Work Culture Can Impact People's Brains

Neuroplasticity may shed light on this matter

Do our work cultures actually impact the neural networks in our brains, for better or worse? The study of neuroplasticity may shed light on this question. 

Neuroplasticity is a relative new field of study, Research first conducted in 1999 on animals and humans found that the brain continues to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life. Neuroplasticity is the term for these brain neurons compensating for injury and adjusting their activity in response to new situations or changes in their environment.

This field of study holds great promise for treatment of brain injury and disease, including dementia and Huntington’s disease. And I believe this field of study holds great promise for understanding the power of our work cultures.
