Have you ever heard the saying, “neurons that fire together wire together?” If so, you were probably sitting in a science class of some sort. Regardless, the saying relates to the concept of neuroplasticity.
Neuroplasticity is the way the brain changes throughout life to adapt, learn and recover. It describes how our experiences can reorganize and develop new neural pathways in the brain. When we learn things or memorize new information we create lasting changes in the structure of our brain.
In short: The brain is adaptable and constantly changing over time. As you read this page your brain is changing and forming new connections!

Neuroplasticity & The Focus System
Unyte-iLs’ Focus System is built around the concept of neuroplasticity, because it uses the brain’s ability to change and adapt to help users build neurological pathways and synaptic activity at any age. Pairing therapeutic music delivered through air and bone conduction headphones with customizable movement and cognitive activities, the Focus System provides additional sensory and motor input for body organization and helps improve attention, concentration and more.
