Titre

Mapping and modulating the developing brain toward better outcomes for disabled children


Résumé

Brain injury at the beginning of life leads to decades of disability for millions worldwide. As a focal injury of defined timing in an otherwise healthy brain, perinatal stroke represents an ideal human model in which developmental plasticity can be studied. We use advanced neuroimaging and non-invasive brain stimulation to map and better understand the developmental processes that occur in the brains of individual children with perinatal stroke to determine function. With central targets identified, we translate models into novel clinical trials combining intensive therapies with non-invasive neuromodulation approaches during which advanced imaging is again applied to explore mechanisms of therapeutic plasticity. With phase 3 trials now running, the potential for personalized neurorehabilitation is closer than ever to being realized for disabled children.
