Neurophysiology Lecture 13

  1. True or False: Brain plasticity takes place throughout the lifetime, but it is not determined by age.
  2. _____ _____: takes place under 3 primary conditions: •Development • In Normal individuals: Performance shapes neural plasticity•As an adaptive mechanism to injury
    Brain Plasticity
  3. In blind individuals, the feeling of touch is aided by the _________ cortex and the _________ cortex.
    Right somatosensory cortex and the occipital cortex
  4. ________ ________ _______: –Can transiently disrupt performance when applied to a cortical region necessary for task completion through the introduction of “random noise” in the neural processes–Therefore, establish causality between task performance and brain activation by interfering with cortical function
