Abstract:. Epistemological concept of plasticity makes links between the unconscious and the conscious, the expression of the future systems is now centered on the perception and representation of brain plasticity. The plasticity of spirit., as knowledge and consciousness of the world, concept that touches art, cross exchange and continuous flow between people, languages and knowledge, and transdisciplinarity approach to human plasticity. Neurobiological plasticity concept showing that experience leaves structural and functional neural networks, also shatter classical opposition between a psychic etiology and organic etiology of mental phenomena. Associations between neuropsychiatric and immunological disorders might involve disruption of microglial activity.
Keywords:brain, microglia, neural, plasticity, unconscious.
