On September 14, 2021, I will be speaking on the topic of “Neuroplasticity, Setting Goals and Creating Hope after Brain Injury and Stroke” through Zoom to the 18th Annual IBICA — International Brain Injury Clubhouse Alliance Virtual Conference.
Here is an outline of the presentation
Here is a link to the conference to register, however there is a fee to attend.
Below is a Bio of the Presenter
In my experience, I needed to engage in 9 habits to gain the benefits of Neuroplasticity. See my article, by clicking on this link:
How I use the principles of neuroplasticity to create new neural pathways and brain reorganization.
In 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2021 I was fortunate to have had several individuals record presentations.
Because of a shoulder injury and Covid I was not able to record in 2019 and 2020.
Presentations of my development using the principles of neuroplasticity to develop new neural pathways and brain reorganization through repetitive mirrored movements.

“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” Bruce Lee
“Research your own experience. Absorb what is useful, Reject what is useless. And add specifically what is your own creation.” Bruce Lee
The Goal — Being a Work in Progress
The goal has been to improve my ability to mirror the same abilities on both the non-dominant side (left side) of my body with the dominant side (right side) of my body. As in the below demonstrations, I engage both sides of my body (my hands, arms, elbows, legs, knees, and feet).
I engage both sides of my body to improve my gross, fine motor skills and muscle memory. I engage both sides of my body to improve my dexterity, hand-eye coordination, agility, balance, stamina, precision, focus and awareness. I engage both sides of my body to improve my skills and abilities.
I engage both sides of my body to improve and enhance the quality of my life and well-being. I engage both sides of my brain and my body to create.
Create Your Own Program
In the event that you have not begun, I would encourage you to create a program. Create a program that will empower you to create neural pathways and brain reorganization. Brain reorganization through repetitive mirrored movements on your dominant and non-dominant sides of your body. Brain reorganization to improve and enhance your quality of life and well-being.
