Brain plasticity (the ability of a brain to wire and rewire itself with a certain degree of flexibility) is a function of the dance between environment and organism. For instance; if a person uses an instrument over long periods of time it has an effect on the way the brain is then wired so to speak. On large scale population levels it can lead a certain ways of thinking where the brain is trained to acquire certain areas of emphasis to the exclusion of others that have real world implications on things like identity, ways of thinking and the way life is experienced.
