Remodeling after a stroke

After a stroke, neurons and neuronal interconnections
are damaged. The brain urgently needs to:

  • Nourish the “ailing” neurons
  • Restore synaptic connections

 

Neuroplasticity allows the brain

  • To rebuild the connections
  • To compensate for irreparably damaged or dysfunctional neurons

 

How?

  • Undamaged neurons may grow new processes to reconnect neurons whose links were injured and severed, by forming new neural connections
  • Rehabilitation after stroke improves functional recovery
  • Unfortunately brain self-repair is limited and functional recovery may be incomplete.
  • Treatments that can create a micro-environment that promotes brain plasticity through neuronal proliferation and maturation, neuritic outgrowth and enhanced synaptic communication within the injured brain would help regain lost brain functions.
