In recent decades, neural plasticity has been widely accepted as a common occurrence among researchers and clinicians alike. Incorporating activity-dependent neural plasticity principles in therapy drives the Central Nervous System (CNS) to change and adapt following injury, leading to improved functional outcomes. 

This course discusses the well-researched activity-dependent principles driving neural plasticity that guide therapists in the treatment of their patients with CNS impairments. It also briefly touches on the current state of clinical therapy practice as it relates to those principles.

Lastly, this course reviews technology- and non-technology-based solutions that incorporate those principles and the importance of outcome-based test measures that coincide with treatment.
