Plasticity in Action

Tuesday, May 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Members & guests- free! RSVP below.

Movement Revolution has partnered with The Village Chicago to discuss the concept of brain plasticity. Tune into this virtual session to learn more about our brain’s ability to rewire and strengthen connections regardless of our age- as well as ways lifestyle behaviors can support this process. Part of this event will include strategies on incorporating exercise into our daily routines, one of the small changes we can make to trigger the plasticity process and work to maintain our cognition, even for people with existing neurological conditions.
