Strategic brain training positively affects neural connectivity for individuals with traumatic brain injury

A recent study from the Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas is the first to show that a certain type of instructor-led brain training protocol can stimulate structural changes in the brain and neural connections even years after a traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Strategy-based brain training changes cortical thickness, neural connectivity in adults with TBI

Findings from a recent study from the Center for BrainHealth, published in Brain and Behavior, further suggest that changes in cortical thickness and neural network connectivity may prove an effective way to quantitatively measure treatment efficacy, an ability that has not existed until now.
