1

What signals drive plasticity during learning in the intact brain? And does these differ from those involved in relearning in the damaged brain?

(Kleim 2011)

Neural and behavioural signals

They are the same

2

Kleim defines neuroplasticity as?

(Kleim 2011)

The capacity of neutrons to structurally and functionally adapt in order to reorganise circuits

3

Functional improvements after an injury are simple?

(Kleim 2011)

A re-learning process

4

What are three neural strategies for motor improvement after brain injury? (According to Kleim 2011)

1. Restoration: Rehabiliation training that forces the use of avoided movements to re-engage neural circuits, reinstate movement representations, and synapse be restored

2. Recruitment: enlisting motor areas that have the capacity to contribute to the lost motor function

3. Retraining: adapt existing function or take on additional functions
