This study investigates the initial temporal and spatial progression of neuroplasticity using the Morris water maze training. We looked at the evolution of plasticity at different stages of the learning process as well as the effect of the overall time of the task on these changes. Results provide a first demonstration of an order to the progression of neuroplasticity. Few minutes of training can cause changes in the tissue, and the extent of this effect modifies through the progression of the training. Moreover, it seems some regions are also influenced by the overall time of the experience.
