Promoting recovery of function following stroke by enhancing brain neuroplasticity (e.g. growth of new connections, new neurons, etc.). I study how exercise, stem cells, rehabilitation can be used to improve brain reorganization and repair after stroke or in age related forms of dementia (ex. vascular cognitive impairment). Other work focuses include how unhealthy diets damage blood vessels in the brain and impair learning and memory ability.
