Brain plasticity in leprosy

Brain plasticity is the ability of the brain to change both anatomically and functionally in response to changes in the body or in the environment. A new study done by a multidisciplinary research team shows that peripheral nerve damage caused by leprosy can indeed change the brain. Their finding demonstrates that the brain representation for a given muscle may change depending on the degree of damage in the nerve connecting the muscle to the brain, which is evidence for brain plasticity. A better understanding of the relationship between limb dysfunction caused by leprosy and brain plasticity may help develop new treatment strategies for the millions of individuals currently suffering from this ancient disease.
