We now know the contrary to be true. Neuroscience has confirmed that our brains change throughout our lives, from birth to death. The brain’s ability to rewire its circuitry and make adaptive changes, known as neuroplasticity, is why recovery after injury is possible. But much about neuroplasticity is not well understood. Our researchers are using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and real-time neurofeedback capabilities to conduct several novel pilot studies. Their goal is to correlate changes in the brain to changes in behavior and function. In this episode, Joan Banks-Smith, Creative Producer for Kessler Foundation, spoke with three researchers about their latest studies (see specific list below): Olga Boukrina, PhD, senior research scientist in the Center for Stroke Rehabilitation Research; Jeanne Zanca, PhD, senior research scientist in the Centers for Spinal Cord Injury and Outcomes and Assessment Research; and Glenn Wylie, DPhil, director of the Rocco Ortenzio Center for Neuroimaging at Kessler Foundation.
