Abstract: Objectives: Human brain is a dynamic system that allows for experience-dependent functional organization as well as re-organization. This unique characteristic of the brain enables us to execute goal-oriented behaviors for the successful survival and perpetuation of the human race.
Methods: We present findings of a series of behavioral and functional neuroimaging studies that examined 1) training-induced plasticity in healthy volunteers as well as individuals suffering from congenital sensory deprivation, and 2) the reorganization of neural circuitry for inhibitory control in a patient recovering from a cerebral vascular accident.
Results: Via environmental influences and internal neurochemical mechanisms, the brain exercises its potential of organizing itself in such a way that its functions can be maximized. Conclusions: Findings enable us to understand the longitudinal changes of the brain during learning and the recovery from brain injuries.
