1926 - 2017
At a time in which neuroscientists believed in the fixed nature of the brain, Marian Diamond and her team described neuroanatomical changes in rat brain, suggesting the dynamic characteristic of the brain. This was the first evidence of neuroplasticity.
Embracing neuroplasticity and, therefore, foreseen brain rehabilitation as a possibility, opened a window of opportunities in neuroscience and healthcare.
“If there is an opportunity to improve your brain, you want to be there” Marian Diamond said in the film My Love Affair with the Brain.
