Skaters’ brains: Specialized training of complex motor skills may induce sports-specific structural changes in cerebellum

Skaters’ brains: Specialized training of complex motor skills may induce sports-specific structural changes in cerebellum.

Great article that supports functional neurology and it’s approach to balancing the brain. It also shows that the brain adapts and changes based on it’s environmental stimuli’s.  This is why providing patient’s with exercises to stimulate specific area’s of the brain can promote permanent change to improve function.
