Congratulations to Dr. Greg Silasi on his CIHR project grant, focused on assessing how microinfarcts alter brain function and recovery after a major stroke. As 1/3 individuals over 65 have microinfarcts, understanding their impact can lead to improved rehabilitation methods.
Dr. Greg Silasi was featured in the uOBMRI's Brain Health Awareness Week in October. Watch his research presentation here.
Congratulations to Dr. Paul Albert, awarded a CIHR project that will use innovative and novel approaches to enhance neuroplasticity and overcome antidepressants. This research can inform better treatment options for patients who do not respond to current antidepressant drugs.
