How fast does brain adapt to body injury? Quickly, study says
from Los Angeles Times
Stories abound about the remarkable flexibility of the human brain: When a portion of it is injured, electrical signals can reroute themselves to restore lost function; with an amputation, brain cells dedicated to processing incoming sensory signals from the lost appendage get reassigned to do other work. But just how fast does such restructuring take place? Pretty darn quick, a new study in the journal Neurology has found.
