CNS Regeneration

Contrary to previously held beliefs about the static nature of the adult brain, it is capable of generating new neurons that are capable of integrating into the complex circuitry.

I found art to be very therapeutic. Obviously I was working on fine motor. But now that I think about it, there had to be other stuff- sitting up is gross motor, cuz it was in a group/class, social skills. Neurogen could have been happening the whole time, but the art class took my mind off that and gave me something positive to focus on. The class was an alternative not required by this hospital's rehab program, so data was not kept. I'd say, though, it was an integral part of recovery.

I'm especially interested in the role of behavior-dependent neurogenesis and am  investigating the effects of an art-based protocol on clinical outcomes for stroke and MS patient populations this summer. I hope to have something interesting to report this fall.
