Changes in the adult brain happen faster than originally thought

Physorg.com reports that adult brain can change within seconds. The article speaks of plasticity, which reminds me of the materials from Holosync that have mentioned that. Scientists temporarily deprived part of the brain from receiving input and the brain is "referring" signals from nearby regions of the brain to compensate for that. They're speculating that this reorganized response to sensory information reflects a rewiring of the brain or a growth of new connections. Again, this reminds me of stuff talked about in the Holosync materials.
