  Plasticity is the brain's astounding capacity to create new connections 
and relearn information or behaviors that were lost due to seizures or 
other insults to the brain. The developing brain does this by creating new 
functional neuronal networks. The brain has the greatest plasticity in 
childhood, and the potential for plasticity diminishes over time.

(just came across that today in my line of work...)
