How can we activate neuroplasticity?
Through neuropsychological rehabilitation.
How does it work?
It enhances cognitive functions and the carrying out of daily life activities by utilizing brain plasticity. It cannot be considered a cure for the disease, but can help prevent and delay cognitive decline.
Is it possible to delay the onset of the disease or delay its development through neuropsychological rehabilitation?
Yes indeed, because a certain amount of neuronal survival and plasticity in aging and dementia remains in place and is use-dependent. This is based on the assumption that the adult brain can be regenerated, even in old age, as long as we feed it with new experiences. This is exactly the aim of our approach: prevention and delay of the progression of the disease. The activation of brain cells offers protection against atrophy.
