2. Structural Neuroplasticity

Where functional neuroplasticity refers to the brain's ability to alter functionality by moving activity from one area to another, structural neuroplasticity is about the physical changes that happen when the brain learns new skills and makes new memories. During this process, the synaptic interconnection strength increases. Research shows that musical training is one of the best ways to strengthen structural neuroplasticity.
