Brain plasticity can be conceptualized as nature’s invention to adapt to a rapidly changing environment. As such, plasticity is an intrinsic property of the brain – however, mechanisms of plasticity may vary and change with age and circumstance. Questions asked by our clinicians include brain changes across varied situations and understanding networks affected by neurological disease, resulting in symptoms. Approaches range from basic neuroscience to neuroimaging studies correlating functional brain connectivity to clinical symptom expression.
