Working with smart people, especially if they were smarter than we are, changed us. A few years ago we found out the scientific term for this process: Neuroplasticity. Researchers had discovered that the brain can be rewired even in adult life and way into our 50s and beyond. It had been assumed that the pathways got set during teenage years and that was that.
More evidence for neuroplasticity, reports Karen Sloan in THE NATIONAL LAW JOURNAL, comes from researchers at the University of California. They found that studying for the LSAT also changed the brain. It was for the better.
