After reading Chapter 13 of your course text and viewing The Road to Recovery Following Brain Injury (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and What is a Stem Cell? (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.,  which cover brain injury and repair, analyze the clinical, biological,  and psychological factors that are important in successful brain  function recovery outcomes. How can the brain repair itself or restore  lost function after TBI or other brain damage (focus on the concept of  neuroplasticity)?  Wilson (2012) lists ways that the brain can repair  itself, but reminds us later in the chapter that, in most areas of the  brain, replication of neurons by mitosis to replace lost/dead neurons  only occurs in immature brains (i.e., essentially those younger than age  two). There are some areas (e.g., the hippocampus, which is responsible  for memory) that have neurogenesis, but other areas of the brain must  utilize neuroplasticity to restore lost function.

In addition,  discuss what clinical, biological, and psychological factors are  important in successful brain function recovery outcomes. What are some  clinical interventions (e.g., medication, surgery, stem cell therapy,  physical therapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation techniques, and  psychotherapy) that help facilitate the restoration of lost brain  function? Include information on brain structures, pathways,  neurotransmitters/receptors, and psychological factors when discussing  the topic areas above. Additional emphasis should be placed on relating  the underlying pathology of brain trauma and damage to the actual  biologic mechanism of how various treatments support repair or  restoration of function.   

In keeping with the focus of this  class, the emphasis should be placed on the role of neurotransmitter and  receptor systems, neuroanatomical structures, and neurological  functional pathways. You must use a minimum of one peer-reviewed source  that was published within the last five years, documented in APA style,  as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.  Your post should be a  minimum of 250 words.  You may cite and reference your textbook,  required reading and/or multimedia, but these will not fulfill the  source requirement.
