Crucial role in regeneration from various diseases of CNS including trauma (brain and spinal cord injuries) is maintained by neuroplasticity – ability of certain CNS neurones to gain control of lost function. In Neurorehabilitation, both theoretical and clinical knowledge of influencing CNS and peripheral nerve regeneration and thus efficacy of rehabilitation process will be discussed thoroughly.
