Functional Recovery

Functional recovery is the transfer of functions from a damaged area of the brain after trauma, to other undamaged areas. Functional recovery can take place through a process termed neuronal unmasking, where ‘dormant’ synapses (which have not received enough input to be active), open connections to compensate for a damaged area of the brain.
