Study Findings Could Lead to Improved Treatments for Stroke, Other Brain Injuries
Published as the cover story in a recent issue of Nature, researchers found for the first time that there are constraints on how adaptable the brain is during learning and that these constraints are the key determinant for whether a new skill will be easy or difficult to learn. Understanding the ways in which the brain’s activity can be “flexed” during learning could eventually be used to develop better treatments for stroke and other brain injuries.
