Neuroplasticity

Neuroplasticity is the innate capacity of the nervous system to change and adapt to different stimuli

Neuroplasticity is a must during development but also during adulthood when we try to learn and and remember new facts and events. Neuroplasticity forms the basis of recovery in neurological conditions such as stroke and it is essential in other neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.

In the Memory Lab we study basic mechanism of neuroplasticity to create novel and more effective  interventions that will promote changes in the brain to improve and maintain cognitive and physical well being in different population groups.
