Neonatologist Dr. Karen Pape reveals how some children with early brain damage, such as that causing motor issues like cerebral palsy, defied expectations by engaging in activities like running, soccer, tap dancing, and tennis.

Contrary to the widespread belief that the brain is unchangeable, Pape's findings demonstrated that these children's brains could heal and improve: she discovered that these children’s awkward walking was a habit formed while their brains were still damaged, and once healed, they could run with ease.

Her work highlights neuroplasticity, the brain's ability to adapt and heal. It offers new hope for children with brain injuries and reshapes the understanding of brain development and recovery.
