Neuroplasticity and Rehabilitation Book Excerpt:

Brain plasticity is the focus of a growing body of research with significant implications for neurorehabilitation. This state-of-the-art volume explores ways in which brain-injured individuals may be helped not only to compensate for their loss of cognitive abilities, but also possibly to restore those abilities. Expert contributors examine the extent to which damaged cortical regions can actually recover and resume previous functions, as well as how intact regions are recruited to take on tasks once mediated by the damaged region. Evidence-based rehabilitation approaches are reviewed for a range of impairments and clinical populations, including both children and adults.

Neurological Rehabilitation Book Excerpt:

In this chapter we address the phenomena of neural plasticity, operationally defined as the ability of the central nervous system to adapt in response to changes in the environment or lesions. At the cellular level, we discuss basic changes in membrane excitability, synaptic plasticity as well as structural changes in dendritic and axonal anatomy that support behavioral expressions of plasticity and functional recovery. We consider the different levels at which these changes can occur and possible links with modification of cognitive strategies, recruitment of new/different neural networks, or changes in strength of such connections or specific brain areas in charge of carrying out a particular task (i.e., movement, language, vision, hearing). The study of neuroplasticity has wide-reaching implications for understanding reorganization of action and cognition in the healthy and lesioned brain.

The Use of Art Therapy to Assist Neuroplasticity During Rehabilitation After a Stroke Book Excerpt:

The purpose of this study is to show the benefits of using art therapy as part of a rehabilitation regime after a stroke. After experiencing a stroke, a person may be afflicted with a number of impairments that can affect speech, language, sight, movement, cognitive capabilities, and emotion. In most cases, the person who experienced the stroke will undergo speech, physical, and occupational therapies to help relearn daily tasks. While the focus of this study is on the advantages of using art therapy to reshape the brains of stroke patients during rehabilitation, there are also studies included showing how art and creativity can help the brain during development and after other kinds of injuries or illnesses. As more and more is learned about the brain's ability to change itself when confronted with outside stimuli, new research is being done on how to assist the brain in making up for lost or damaged neurons. Since this project is theoretical, the research done in this study is all literature and knowledge based, collected from scholarly articles and books. Using the process of intuitive inquiry to gather, analyze, and synthesize relevant information, the student researcher shows how art therapy can assist the recovery of damaged neural connections and create new connections in the brain to regain everyday functions after a stroke.

Neuroplasticity in Learning and Rehabilitation Book Excerpt:

We possess as a cognitively aware species a high degree of function localization, but we still subscribe to the notion consistent with the model that dysfunction or damage to specific regions of the brain and nervous system may result in specific damage and deficits in behavior and function of individuals. Unfortunately, that is not enough to explain the capacity for plasticity, regeneration, spontaneous recovery, and optimization in neurological terms, and certainly not in its translation in clinical rehabilitation. Among the difficulties we face in the application of rehabilitation science in practice, the need to understand how the nervous system functions is less than understanding how it recovers from dysfunction, how we can effectively evaluate function, dysfunction and recovery, and how to provide a rational basis for making economic decisions about which method or methodology to invest. A neuroanatomical conceptualization is a not an option for rehabilitation practice. It is important to understand that what we are really attempting to achieve both in rehabilitation as well as in understanding the neurological basis of cognitive and motor improvement after trauma or stroke is not which brain area controls a given cognitive function, but how efficiently brain regions cooperate with each other and how novel connectivities may develop.
