It dreameth but of beauty evermore.

Experimental neuroscience has shown that enhanced electric activity induces synaptic growth and dendritic arborization (Lee et al., 1980; Frank, 1997; Klintsova and Greenough, 1999; Roo et al., 2008).
Interplay between Network Topology and Dynamics in Neural Systems
Synaptic growth and dendritic arborization have been shown to increase with electric stimulation (Lee et al., 1980; Roo et al., 2008) – and, in general, the more connected a neuron is, the more current it receives from the sum of its neighbours.
