    Hi, philg.

    Glad you enjoyed the links. https://www.ted.com/topics has an enormous variety of topics reflecting research regarding many scientific topics, including much more than what you and I have been discussing.

    As to brain plasticity experience during my recovery, since I did not lose any significant amount of brain tissue due to prompt medical intervention, I cannot say that I have had any personal experience of one or more sections of brain replacing any lost brain tissues, except for adjacent unaffected cellular tissues making new connections, replacing what was inhibited, lost or became nicrotic. The experience of stroke resulted in a massive slowdown in motor & sensory control, which in my case was affecting vision, speech, and dexterity, all results of my right brain perfusive strokes and right brain blood supply loss. Just imagine a filter, which has been functioning well collecting dirt and corrosion particles suddenly failing and letting all of those collected particles being suddenly released into engine parts. In the case of my brain the arteries were being clogged and blood supply was denied to my brain, which affected brain tissue causing massive strokes.


    Once the blood supply was returned through surgery, brain tissue was allowed to begin to repair itself. This took quite some time (years) to fully repair.
