Neural Plasticity and Neurorehabilitation
The Neural Plasticity and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory led by Sook-Lei Liew explores neural recovery and methods for enhancing neuroplasticity of the motor system to improve an individual’s motor capabilities after neurological injury. This laboratory uses neuroimaging tools, such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), real-time fMRI neurofeedback, structural MRI, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and diffusion weighted imaging (DWI), as well as noninvasive brain stimulation techniques (transcranial electric stimulation, transcranial magnetic stimulation). This work aims to predict and enhance rehabilitation outcomes and inform optimal treatment programs for individuals following a stroke or brain injury.
