Neuroplasticity

My Plastic Brain refers to the amazing neuroplastic capabilities that the brain possesses.  (neuro = neuron, plastic = moldable).  While certain areas of the brain tend to be responsible for particular functions, there is overlap which allows for new pathways to be established.  The more these new pathways are used (repetition), the more ingrained they become.  Solidifying these new pathways allows for ‘rewiring’ to take place.  Functions that were once lost due to injury or stroke can be rehabilitated.  In other words, different areas of the brain can be recruited to perform functions that were damaged due to injury.

Neuroplasticity requires:

  1. Specificity - opportunity to practice the skill - specific to the way it will be used.
  2. Repetition - the skill must be practiced over and over again.
  3. Challenge - The ‘load’ or level of challenge must be continually increased.

Promoting neuroplasticity as part of your rehab therapy program!  Assist your brain to recover decreased function due to stroke and neurological injury or illness.
