Abstract

Cognitive stimulation is a fascinating scientific issue, which taps into a crucial aspect of the human brain: its neural and functional plasticity. It is a key issue for human life and basic science to understand the cognitive and neural mechanisms that govern this plasticity, with tremendous implications for society in terms of healthcare, education, and technology. In patient populations, cognitive stimulation is a non-invasive and non-pharmacological method to recover brain and motor functions after brain injury or delayed mental development. It opens new perspectives for therapeutic intervention to improve the well-being of patients suffering from various diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and stroke.
