Manipulating brain network to change cognitive functions: New breakthrough in neuroscience

23:08 EDT 6 Aug 2017 | Medical Xpress

When an electric circuit breaks down, we can repair it by restoring connections in the circuit. Is it possible to restore the connections in our brain? And by doing so, is it possible to restore declining cognitive functions? Numerous regions of the brain are connected together and constitute a huge network. Researchers have developed a learning method to change cognitive function by manipulating connections in the brain. The study, published in the journal Cerebral Cortex, could lead to important applications in clinical, rehabilitation and learning-assistive methods taking advantage of a neural plasticity.
