Summary of this content:
This paper defines the 10 principles of neural plasticity that should be applied in the rehabilitation of the adult patient post brain damage. It also explores the research that underpins these principles.
Objectives of the course:
On completion of this CPD activity, the participant will be able to:
- List and define the principles of neural plasticity.
- Discuss the evidence behind these principles.
- Relate these principles to treatment of adult clients with brain injury.
- Discuss the possible negative effects of inappropriate frequency and timing of therapy on recovery following brain injury.
