Department of Neurology,

Most patients show some degree of spontaneous recovery after a brain injury such as a stroke, although it is usually incomplete. Recent studies provide insight into the biological mechanisms responsible for this spontaneous recovery. Dr. Cramer, a leading researcher and physician in stroke recovery, will discuss these mechanisms and explore emerging therapies that aim to improve brain repair and thus reduce disability.

This event is free.
