Prune your dendrites...

Your postnatal mind developed, your synapses laid down connection chains, your recurring habits and thoughts created solid dendritic branches, thoroughfares of behavior, while other neurons didn't interconnect and therefore atrophied or were 'pruned' out of the network. This natural pruning phenomena suggests to some that bad habits and thought patterns can be pruned away by laying down new ones. How do you create new and preferable dendritic superhighways and let the old and undesirable ones wilt away? I'll let you know when I've got a real answer.
