Brain Plasticity Lab

University of Western Australia | The Perron Institute

The Brain Plasticity Lab’s research explores the physiological, cellular and molecular basis of brain plasticity in order to develop therapeutic strategies to improve brain plasticity in patients, with the goal of developing effective treatments for patients with neurotrauma and neurological disease. This includes utilizing non-invasive brain stimulation techniques such as repetitive transcranial stimulation and transcranial direct current stimulation.
