Giulio Tononi, of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, gave a presentation on "Sleep function and synaptic homeostasis" at the 2011 Allen Institute for Brain Science Symposium.

This is one of the more comprehensive reviews I have seen recently. I was particularly interested at the 13 minute point where he talks about "pruning." I frequently get asked whether neurons can regenerate during MP recovery, yet they (and synapses) already change dynamically both in health and disease. Apparently sleep is one of the triggers for brain  plasticity.

This tends to help explain why, even though it is often delayed to the end of the healing process,  why we see such a profound improvement in members' neurological function.

Interesting ... if very technical!

So there is still hope for me that I may still recover after 4 years on the MP.  So far it has been a slow steady decline in my motor functions!  It will be interesting to see if this late in the MP there is any motor function improvement!

Neurological functions are so complicated :?
from The Astonishing Hypothesis by Frances Crick
[on the role of the thalamus in consciousness]
(re) thalamic regions called 'intralaminar nuclei'
“One of these nuclei – the nucleus centralis – is closely associated with the visual system. These nuclei project mainly to an important part of the brain, the corpus striatum, although they also project to a lesser extent to many cortical regions. The striatum is intimately connected with the motor system, but some parts of it may be concerned with more cognitive matters. It is one of the parts of the brain that is affected by Parkinson's disease.”

IMHO perceptions and other cognitive functions may have disturbing effects on healing process within the motor system

I wachted the video but since I am not a scientist I only understand that sleep is essential for regeneration in the body.

Dr. Marshall:
why do you say that improvement in neurological function mainly happens at the end of the healing process?
I should think it would be a constant slow improvement throughout the healing process.

It is just my personal observation, Edward. Neurological gains are what I have seen these last 3 years, long after Doc was happy 'the disease has gone away'...

This end of healing neurological improvement .. is what keeps my spirits up as things have gotten progressively worse over these past four years! :D

Good health,
Chris
