Experience-dependent plasticity refers to a process by which neurons adapt to the specific environment within which a person or animal lives. This is achieved when neurons change their response properties so they become tuned to respond best to stimuli that have been repeatedly experienced in the environment. Please see also Neural plasticity ; Selective rearing.

Experience-dependent Processes (or Experience-dependent Synaptogenesis) refer to processes whereby synapses are formed and maintained as a result of the unique experiences of an individual. In contrast with Experience-expectant Processes.
Experience-expectant refers to the neural connections that develop under genetic influence, independent of experience, activity, or stimulation
