WSC 2022 | Neuroplastic mechanisms involved in stroke neurorehabilitation

Abhijit Das, MBBS, MD, DM, MRCP, The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust, gives an insight on the neuroplastic mechanisms involved in neurorehabilitation after stroke. It is now known that the brain reorganizes itself after any lesion, within limits. It seems that this plastic mechanism could be staggered, meaning that the capacity for neuroplasticity is specific to different regions of the brain. For example, a patient with subcortical stroke will typically have a worse outcome in comparison to a cortical stroke. The mechanisms behind neuroplasticity are beginning to be understood, with specific research focusing on the genetic factors affecting how different people demonstrate varying rates of recovery following stroke. This interview took place at the World Stroke Congress 2022 in Singapore.
