Open to: Academic | Student

Prof. Cathy Price and the PLORAS team (WTCN, UCL) - "Problems and solutions with lesion-deficit mapping: The PLORAS approach"

We know for sure that different brain regions have different functions (functional specialisation) and that many higher level functions are defined by the combination of regions that work together (neural systems/networks) and the way these regions interact with one another (functional integration). We also know that focal lesions to different brain regions can result in distinctly different cognitive deficits. Why then is it so difficult to predict how a brain lesion will affect function in a new patient? Some of the challenges are well recognised including the brain’s impressive ability to functionally reorganise itself after damage, and inherent inter-subject variability in cognitive strategies and learning styles....More information in the link below.
