    is now the TCNL and his bold vision continues to inspire our work today Our mission is to explore the limitless capabilities of the brain to rewire itself and to use this untapped potential to help individuals with various disorders such as stroke blindness multiple sclerosis and others regain function Our team includes scientists and engineers who are passionately dedicated to research and innovation in the field of neuroplasticity We are led by three project directors each of whom has more than 20 years of experience in their respective fields of neuroscience biomedical science and engineering The scope of our teams expertise have allowed us to unveil the boundless and previously unimagined capabilities of the human brain and to bring the theory of neuroplasticity and neurorehabilitation to practice Our research is driven by the principle that the brain circuitry is not hardwired or fixed but can be reorganized in response to new experiences sensory input and functional demands This area of research is called neuroplasticity and is a promising and rapidly growing area of brain research Our objectives are to design interventions to help people with sensory and neurological disorders regain function We explore how touch can substitute for other
