Description

Neuroplasticity has recently gained popular interest with services proclaiming its role in learning and memory. Quite simply, neuroplasticity is the long lasting alteration in the activity of a neural system in response to previous experiences. It is a phenomenon that has been observed in many diverse neural systems. Here we will explore mechanisms by which neuron-muscle interactions can be strengthened and consider how some of these experimental concepts may be applied to improve outcomes in neuromotor disorders of veterinary populations.

Objectives

To identify the characteristics defining neuroplasticity in respiratory and non-respiratory neuro-motor circuits
To describe endogenous mechanisms underlying modulations in neural motor systems in neuroplasticity
To identify key points at which neuroplastic principles may be harnessed to improve management of veterinary clinical conditions
To discuss clinical research findings in the application of neuroplasticity in humans
To speculate on application in veterinary clinical conditions

Dr. Joel Weltman joined the critical care staff of the Animal Medical Center in October 2017. After completing veterinary school at the University of Wisconsin, he studied as a rotating intern at his current institution and as an emergency and critical care resident at Cornell University. Most recently he completed a PhD at the University of Wisconsin where he investigated the roles of neuroplasticity in stabilizing and strengthening the neural signals controlling breathing.
