In Canada there are ~50,000 strokes per year. A majority of stroke survivors are left with life long disabilities making stroke the leading cause of permanent neurological disability. Recent findings suggest that stroke injury triggers restorative processes to create a cerebral milieu similar to that of early brain development, a period characterized by rapid neuronal growth and neuroplasticity. In my lab we attempt to optimally engage these neuroplasticity/re-organizational processes to better enhance post-stroke recovery of function. We use sophisticated animal models of stroke that lend themselves to clinical translation.
