Medical Information on neurplasticity?

  1. Aug 7, 2008 #1
    Hi, I was wondering if anybody could point me to where I could find information on neurplasticity? Specifically related to the physiology of it.

    Internet sources would be great, but I'd be happy to purchase any books if somebody would make a recommendation. :3

    Re: Neuroplasticity.

    You can search the National Library of Medicine at PubMed: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez/. Click the "Review" for review articles.

    You can also search books at the National Center for Biotechnology information: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez?db=Books/ [Broken].

    Like Monique said, Pubmed is probably the best place to start looking for review and journal articles.

    Also, Nature neuroscience provides mostly high-quality reviews by respected authors, usually intended for a more general audience.


    I recommend you search many phrases like "synaptic plasticity" and "plasticity" to get the full range of possible reviews.

    However, be aware that neuroplasticity can refer to a large number of things.

    What exactly about plasticity were you interested in?
