Part 3: Neuroplasticity quiz

This post is the final in a three-part series on the topic of neuroplasticity. If you haven't already, I recommended reading part 1 and 2, which you can find by clicking here or here.

Now that you’ve read all the information on neuroplasticity and hopefully are interested in the topic, it’s time for a quiz! Here are 5 questions on the topic of neuroplasticity. These should test your knowledge of the information covered in the previous two blog posts.


So, how did you do in the quiz? Please let me know in the comments!

Has this series changed your view of the brain and plasticity?

This blog post is part of my Final Year Project for my Neuroscience BSc at the University of Manchester.

I would really appreciate if you took the time to write a comment below detailing your opinion on neuroplasticity, and how it may have changed after reading this post – feel free to write this anonymously if you so wish.

Thank you, and I hope you enjoyed this post!

  1. I am pleased to say I answered all questions correctly! Enjoyed the quiz and the posts along the way which have caught my interest. Just the right amount of detailed knowledge for a non-science person like myself to follow along. I had very little idea what neuroplasticity was before I started; now I am much more aware. Good luck with your Final Year Project and I will look out for future posts.

    1. Thanks for your comment. So pleased to hear you got 5/5! Your feedback is really helpful, so thank you very much for taking the time to take part in the quiz and let me know how you got on :)

      Unfortunately, as the blog will be submitted as part of my Final Year Project I won't be able to access it from the day I submit my project until I am given my final grade - in order to monitor that I can't change/update the blog posts whenever I feel like it(!) ... So this will be the last post until June/July. Thanks again for reading, and I hope you enjoyed the series :)

  5. Great quiz..my score on the other hand, not so great (3/5). I was very surprised with question 4, I automatically assumed investigations would have taken place much earlier than 1993 since it was first acknowledged in the 1800s (if I remember correctly).

    Overall I really enjoyed reading your 3-part series, it was fun and informative without getting too scientific for us amateurs! I feel like I now know a lot more about neuroplasticity and the complex yet wonderful nature of the human brain with it's ability to adapt to different environments so easily. Like they say practice makes perfect!

    Keep up the good work Emily :)

  7. Hi Emily!

    I really enjoyed your series! I guess I'll start with praise first (of which there is more than enough to fill this comment box):

    1) It was great that you wrote about cultural examples as well as scientific studies. I think it definitely makes the blog posts more approachable and adds more depth!

    2) Providing links to outside sources was a great idea. I also can't resist a BBC documentary so automatically I wanted to know more.

    3) You did a really great job of explaining a relatively difficult topic (not to me as I'm like really really smart). It was a great mix of hard science and lay writing.

    I do have something I would have liked to have seen:

    1) In blog post no 2, myth 1 you wrote about experiments conducted in the 1900s. I would have liked to have known how these were different/more definitive than the dog study you mentioned.

    Also, I think series are something you should keep doing!

      Your feedback is so so helpful and I would love to use some of your comments in my Final Year Project analysis. It's great to hear which parts you found interesting, and which you felt could be improved.

      Really pleased that you thought the mix of science and lay writing was ok - that is the main aim of writing these posts!

      Thanks again :) Feel free to subscribe to my blog if you would like updates when I post more about other brain-related topics!
