Short answer Subcortical structures can definitely show neuroplasticity in adults. Most likely, all brain structures can show plastic changes to some degree. Background The question is rather broad, as there are many subcortical structures and neuroplasticity is age-dependent. I will therefore restrict my answer to three examples I dug up from the ...

Synapses likely change their strengths based on a form of spike-timing-dependent plasticity. Is this true for all types of synapses in all parts of the human brain? No, not all. For example, there is frequency-dependent-plasticity, where the firing frequency of the pre-synaptic cell will change the synaptic strength. In Nikolaev, et. al. (2013), ...
