Whereas large injuries to the brain lead to considerable irreversible functional impairments, smaller strokes or traumatic lesions are often associated with good recovery. This recovery occurs spontaneously, and there is ample evidence from preclinical studies to suggest that adjacent undamaged areas (also known as peri-infarct regions) of the cortex 'take over' control of the disrupted functions. In rodents, sprouting of axons and dendrites has been observed in this region following stroke… CONTINUE READING
