A brief introduction to NEUROPLASTICITY

  1. 1. A Brief Introduction To Neuroplasticity Prepared By- Maheshwor Yadav Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Sciences Nobel College , Pokhara University
  2. 2. Table of content • Introduction • Background and Literature Review • Methodology • Result and Discussion • Conclusion • References
  3. 3. Introduction • Neuroplasticity - The brain’s capacity to form new neural connections throughout life • the inherent capacity of brain to form new interneuronal connection • includes a wide range of structural and physiological mechanisms including synaptogenesis, neurogenesis, neuronal sprouting
  4. 4. • Neuroplasticity enables the nervous system to adapt to changing environmental conditions by the processes of learning and memory, as well as a self-repair capacity • It can occur on multiple levels, in accordance to nature and extent of neuroplasticity • They are short term and long term neuroplasticity
  5. 5. • Short term includes neuroplasticity that occur within seconds to hours • It can be observed by inducing voltage changes in cortical regions of the brain via single-pulsed transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) • Long term includes neuroplasticity in brain who have become proficient at certain tasks
  6. 6. • The basic synaptic pattern between various centers in the nervous system develops during the development of an individual based on a genetic program • However, the neural circuits and pathways remain plastic and are modified throughout the lifetime of an individual
  7. 7. Background and literature review • In early days researchers believed that brain has no ability to change. • But after studies they found that they were wrong. • According to Pareja-Galeano and his team, the maintainance of synaptic structure, axonal elongation and neurogenesis can occur by exercise
  8. 8. • According to Aage R. Moller, long time after traumatic surgery or accident, continuous pain is also the effect of neuroplasticity. • It is because after accident a person may have injury and pain for two or three weeks. During that time a neuronal pathway for pain develops in the brain so, although injury is completely healed he fells a sensation of pain
  9. 9. • The knowledge of neuroplasticity helps to overcome motor deficits and paralysis caused by stroke or any accidents • A blind person may be able to sense things around him after enhancement in neuroplasticity
  10. 10. Methodology • This seminar report is prepared on the basis of secondary resources information. • There was no direct observation or any direct questionnaire with peoples. • The above information are based on journals published by several authors and researchers.
  11. 11. Result and discussion • From above study it has been found that neuroplasticity is a natural and inherent capability of brain to develop neuronal connections according to our behaviour, thoughts and adaptation. • We can use its concept to apply on patients with blindness, neuromotor disability for curing.
  12. 12. • It has been found that long term pain after traumatic surgery, is also the effect of neuroplasticity • A blind person may be able to sense things around him with the help of instruments after enhancement in neuroplasticity • It is also found that neuroplasticity occurs in people of any age
