Neuronal Plasticity - A Long Journey - August, 2014

Neuronal plasticity - once thought to occur only during brain development - can be defined as the ability of the nervous system to adapt neuronal structure, function and organization in response to new experiences, developmental or environmental changes, or other factors (e.g. injuries) affecting the condition of the nervous system or the organism as a whole.

To stimulate and accelerate neuronal plasticity, a key feature of adult brain function, is thus important for restoring neuronal function after injury or in recovery from neurodegenerative diseases.
