Brain Mysteries’ blog post reminds us that neuroplasticity is assisted by treatment even well after a stroke has occurred. Continuing treatment well over six months after a stroke can continue to heal the brain. Unfortunately, the post notes a University of Missouri article that finds the “current health system is still not giving patients enough time to recover and underestimating what the human brain can do given the right conditions.”
Those involved with neurofeedback understand the brain’s potential for change. In fact, neurofeedback has great potential for healing the brain after stroke. (see http://www.aboutneurofeedback.com/stroke.htm).
