Plasticity has a number of meanings in psychology:
- Phenotypic plasticity: Describes the degree to which an organism's phenotype is determined by its genotype.
- Neuroplasticity: Entire brain structures can change to better cope with the environment. Specifically, when an area of the brain is damaged and non-functional, another area may take over some of the function. This is known as neuroplasticity.
