It’s brain awareness week, the global campaign to foster public enthusiasm and support for brain science! VASCage runs a series of interviews with some of our researchers.
-WHAT FASCINATES YOU ABOUT THE BRAIN?
The brain is a very delicate and complex organ that we might never understand in its whole function. Even though a small damage can cause severe deficits, the brain plasticity and ability to reorganize is astonishing.
-HOW DOES YOUR RESEARCH CONTRIBUTE TO A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE BRAIN?
The observation of deficits evoked by local brain damage due to strokes and their recovery help to understand the function of the healthy brain.
-WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE FOR PEOPLE WITH YOUR RESEARCH?
We want to better understand the causes and mechanisms of stroke to improve patient care, facilitate recovery and prevent strokes from happening.
