The Adaptive Barrier
One of the most startling aspects of the Blood Brain Barrier is that part of it actually serves as a gauge to read what passes through the brain’s circulatory system, but never enters into the brain tissue itself. By being able to read these molecules zipping by in the bloodstream, the brain can match these in areas that are deficient in the brain and make pinpoint releases where these molecules are lacking. Thus the brain changes itself in specific areas and directs the body to change itself in specific areas as a consequence of these changes. If we lacked this function every change in the brain and body at a molecular level would be global, resulting in chaos and a breakdown of order so profound that none of us could survive. Read the last column of text on page 31 of the Neuroplastic Transformation workbook for a more detailed explanation of this phenomenon.
