    Dr. Liew’s research focuses on mechanisms of neural plasticity in healthy individuals and individuals after neurological injury in order to improve their quality of life and engagement in meaningful activities. She directs the Neural Plastiticity and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory, whose goals are: 1) to characterize processes of neural plasticity during learning and rehabilitation using neuroimaging and cortical physiology, 2) to enhance neural plasticity and neurorehabilitation through novel techniques, such as noninvasive brain stimulation and brain computer interfaecs, and 3) to personalize the use of plasticity-inducing paradigms in order to capitalize on each individual’s unique learning or recovery potential.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
