I am so honored to present Dr. Jeffrey Kleim as this week’s guest on Swallow Your Pride! Dr. Kleim’s research is centered around neural plasticity with the goal of engineering therapies to improve the lives of those with stroke, traumatic brain injury, and Parkinson’s disease.

In episode 198, we define neural plasticity, talk about why it matters to clinicians, discuss evidence for plasticity and dysphagia, and dive into the use of adjuvant therapies to promote plasticity and functional improvement.
