Baycrest leads international collaboration to study the brain's ability to recover from damage or disease
Toronto, ONT - Eight research institutes from around the world have joined forces with Toronto's Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care in a multi-million dollar endeavour to study the remarkable, but little understood, ability of brain networks to rewire after damage caused by stroke, Alzheimer's Disease, and other dementias.
The Human Connectome
A workshop sponsored by the James S. McDonnell Foundation and leading up to this collaborative project grant helped to develop ideas on how to achieve a structural description of human brain connectivity. The resulting concept has just been published in PLoS Computational Biology for open access. The full text can be read here.
