Plasticity After Brain Injury (PABI) Study

Plasticity After Brain Injury (PABI) Study

The aim of the study is to examine how well children recover from early damage to the brain, in particular to prefrontal cortex. We seek to assess the long-term effects of childhood stroke on cognitive, social, and emotional processes. This research will help us gain a better understanding of how the brain develops and adapts to these insults.

This work is currently funded by the Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute (PIs: Jacob Neufeld, M.D., and Silvia Bunge, Ph.D.), and is being conducted in collaboration with multiple clinicians at Children’s Hospital Oakland. Professor Robert Knight is a key collaborator on this project. Pilot work in this area was funded by the MacArthur Law and Neuroscience Project, and was conducted in collaboration with UCSF pediatric neurologists Drs. Elysa Marco and Heather Fullerton.
