Brain Anomaly and Plasticity: Hydrocephalus Hydrocephalus, a childhood disorder of excess fluid in the brain, illustrates brain plasticity — the brain’s amazing ability to rebound after injury. While patients with this disorder experience compression and destruction of brain tissue early in life, many are able to function normally later in life, after their brains have compensated for the loss. Understanding the Brain Through Epilepsy What is Matter? Properties and Classification of Matter Matter is one of the big ideas in science. Most areas in physical science can be discussed and explained in terms of matter or energy, and mat Workshop 8: The International Picture The Vel d'Hiv Roundup
