Brain functions are reprogrammed physiologically when they are affected by a brain disorder such as stroke or degenerative disease. The clinical diagnostics of these brain functions are still performed with pen and paper tasks, while we are technically and methodologically able to map this neuroplasticity with brain imaging. The aim of this project is to validate the ERP technology, to draw up a business plan demonstrating the economic, ...

Optimizing the efficacy of transcranial direct current stimulation on cortical neuroplasticity based on a neurovascular coupling model Hasselt University
Neuroplasticity refers to the ability of the brain to change as a result of one's experience, indicating that the brain is plastic and malleable. Synaptic plasticity is the ability of synapses to strengthen or weaken over time, in response to increases or decreases of activity. In the clinical context it determines how patients with a brain injury can recover, e. g. after stroke, in order to regain independence and to perform daily life ...
New avenues to facilitate neuroplasticity in the healthy brain: The effect of transcranial direct current stimulation on motor learning and the impact of acute physical exercise on brain derived neurotrophic factor up-regulation KU Leuven
The brain is a fascinating organ that controls every single movement of the human body. More importantly, it has the ability to change and adapt to its own environment. This ability is known as neuroplasticity and it is the key to learning and memory. Therefore, the idea behind this doctoral project is to take advantage of this human plastic brain and manipulate the environment by using innovative non-invasive brain stimulation techniques to ...
